Re: The Bus Ticket


First post so hopefully I did my search correctly and this is not super obvious. I'm trying to make my bus ticket and the one thing I'm stuck with is the name of the font used in the text above the ticket number, under the 2 circles to the left.

I searched the board and also tried all the sites that help you find fonts by comparing letters etc. and no luck. Anyone know this little detail?

Actually, some things have already been done.

]<click>Free Paper Props



This is the thread to print out the free stuff. The Bus Ticket is one of the first items. Click on "Front" and then on "back" and save the images. Then you can print your own bus ticket. The post card and other stuff are there as well.

Re: The Bus Ticket


Thanks for the info, I have decided to challenge myself and see if I can create the ticket from [sign in to see URL], a bit nuts at this point but I'm doing it as a challenge to practice my Photoshop skills etc. emoticon

I'm recording my progress on my computer screen so I'll share that just for fun and to see what you guys think. I'll do a condensed (sped up) video of course since I've already had to redo and start over some parts.

My goal is to get it as close as possible to the original so I'm basing it on the images here. I've had to take a guess at a couple of things but it's looking pretty good, thats why I was asking about the font on the ticket lower left text block which I'm still researching, my wife is a graphic designer and she had never seen it and was stumped so we'll see. I may have to see if the printable version here is sharp enough to cut and paste as a graphic.

Anyway more news later, thanks for the help!

Re: The Bus Ticket


It sounds like you are well on your way. I can't add anything to what has already been said. The bus ticket is one of the things we know pretty well.

Re: The Bus Ticket


The ticket is a fun project to build. The ticket is patterned after a regional Greyhound tickets, in fact the numbers on the bottom represent locations in the the USA. If you have gone through the paper props link you will note that the bus is close to the original ticket but not the one.

Years ago I searched for Greyhound bus photos, never found the ONE, but it might just pop up now. If it is of any help the bus door is opened and has been Photoshopped off
