Copying Fonts?

 I sometimes have clients come to me with a request to copy fonts that are entirely non-calligraphic. Generally, I recommend that the addressing diverge from trying to mimic a font that is obviously not calligraphic/ hand lettered and that I do something that coordinates with the font but does not try to copy that font. I recently got a request for such and agreed to do it because the quantity was so small. Copying a type/font that is rigid, non- calligraphic is quite time consuming. Here is a sample of the lettering. Happily, the client was quite pleased with my lettering.
