Very well crafted. Respect.
Comment by Stephen Coles (Stewf) 5th june 2008
Ha ha! Great!

All I need now is to kidnap someone! :)
Comment by Em42 5th june 2008
thanks, it was fun to make. was more time consuming than i expected, as having each letter different meant hardly any copy and pasting.
Comment by bryndlefly 5th june 2008
Pity you can't use keyboard shortcuts at work, eh bryndle, you'd never get any legit work done...
Comment by intaglio 6th june 2008
bah, working is overrated anyway
Comment by bryndlefly 6th june 2008
I've added some more characters. i knew ransom notes would require dollar signs, but i'd forgotten about pound and euro symbols. European kidnappers can now use this font.
Comment by bryndlefly 12th june 2008
added more characters

Nice design. There was (is) a font called Ransom Paste that had more diverse letters. Found it on one of those $10 font CDs. Can't find it on internet now.

The person I kidnapped suggested including only a tiny bit of other letters to make look like it came out of a newspaper. After all, they said, that you don't just get the letter 'C' on its own in a newspaper do you?

Comment by subway24 30th june 2008
true, another version with fragments of adjacent letters could be interesting, might try it
Comment by bryndlefly 30th june 2008
nicley done i like it
Comment by Emad 1st july 2008
Very nice
Comment by pillow98 1st july 2008
Needless to say it is an amazing font! But if the letter was 'b' then I wouldn't have 'a' or 'c' as the fragment of the letter beside it. Great work
Comment by digitalx5 4th july 2008
great font! how do you get it to work on my computer?
Comment by tomtom3000 5th july 2008
download it, unzip it, put it somewhere like c-drive, go to start: control panel: fonts, file menu: install new font, find it and go ok. thats if your on a windows pc.
Comment by bryndlefly 6th july 2008
Good thing that you don't have to rip letters from your newspapers.
Comment by JH34 6th july 2008

Comment by bryndlefly 8th july 2008

Comment by Kitty-chan 12th july 2008
bryndlefly,with the obscene cost of gas & public transit being an unreliable getaway vehicle. U'r ingenious font allowed us to budget for a HiBred SmartCar & carpool with some politicians & their mistresses - The Mob
Comment by WalyWog 13th july 2008

Comment by yovichii 31st october 2008
This is great, reminds me of the old San Francisco font on a MacSE.

However, I'm getting a corrupt .ttf on every download I try. Anyone have a fix or alt download link?
Comment by starpause 25th may 2009
