    Default Senior picture font for names/year

    I'm adding my clients' name to their wallet sized senior pictures. I wanted to get some opinions on the font I should use and if I should tilt it a little or just have it straight across. Thanks in advance! Any samples would be nice to see

    I'm wondering why you don't just ask your customer. After all, isn't it their opinion that matters the most?

    Working off of what smc1377 said, it is important what the client wants. But I'd still go into the discussion with a few ideas of possible fonts.

    Not that I have anything in mind right now though. I'll look and come back later to tell you.

    One suggestion is to have several styles to choose from and let your client choose. Have samples of the choices you want to offer and let them decide which one is their favorite.

    Methinks that this is what he was trying to do and so he wanted suggestions from us.

    Correct. I have hundreds of fonts I could use, but I don't know which ones to offer my clients. I wanted to get some opinions on some fonts other people are using. Thanks for your help!

    We just haven't been much help here, huh?

    My thinking is to go with something simple, like some sort of brushed script that isn't too overly fancy. As a designer, a pet peeve of mine is when someone wants to use some gawd awful scripty font that's hard to read and think that it's some cool design. I like simple fonts. Not like Times New Roman simple, but simple and elegant.

    I have monotype corsiva and I actually like it, thanks for the suggestion. I'm running a little short on time with this client, so I'm going to see if she likes this font. I'm still up for some suggestions ... keep em coming
