I am working on creating new graphics for our 1974 Trill. I was wondering if anyone knows what font Trillium used? BTW, Boler is Peignot font (same as Mart Tyler Moore show!).

Cheers

Well unfortunately Peignot is not the Boler font...close but no cigar.

Peignot doesn't have true lower case letters. We've had quite an extensive discussion about the Boler font...click here for more info: boler emblem font, I know we've talked about this before

The Trillium font appears to be just plain ole Arial...maybe with a bit of kerning.

In case you're wondering, I use this website to test for fonts:

Thanks Donna, I should have known it was not a new thoight! No offense to Boler owners. the "bol" part looked right!

For the trillium, the only reference I had was the downloaded copy of the manual and the overpaint on the front window. It may be the copy, but it does look like there is a slight taper in the letters and the "r" does not curve.

The font looks a lot like the text body font on the 1974 Trillium brochure form the Bolerama website. I did some graphics work in the seventies, and I remeber a font that looked like the brochure, but can't put a name to it.

I'm new here, so i'm trying to be as authentic as I can!

Don, can you scan and place the brochure image here on FiberglassRV? I can take a look. I've been in the publishing buiness for nearly 40 years (Yikes, giving away my age) and fonts are a bit of a hobby for me.

BTW, the Trillium image in my post was taken from the Trillium website.

I like Donna, have had to work with fonts as a design draftsmen for almost 50 years.
There are 1000's of font styles and new ones been added every day.
If someone can post a larger image of the Trillum logo and text with the the dimensions of the height and width of the logo and text, I would be willing to draft it up in AutoCAD and then convert it into a PDF file and post it here for those who want it. The same way as I did with the Boler decals awhile ago.

I cut mine from scraps of truck sign vinyl and the coated it with a light spray of clear Krylon lacquer.

Microsoft "Tahoma" is as close as I have found. With Autocad apply a 15 degree slant.
<span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%">TRILLIUM </span>
Here are a couple of Autocad files I worked up.
If this doesn't work let me know and I post them as a different file type.
Sorry seems I can't upload an Autocad ".dwg" file, here's the jpg file.
One image is a digital photo the other from Autocad.
Let me know an address and I'll email the dwg files.
