Ever gone to Whatthefont.com? If you can scan in the font on the front, all you need to do is get a good contrasted image of 4 of the letters in the font, and then upload it as a 100 pixel high GIF image...it'll then tell you want the font is.

Thanks! I just tried that website and found out that the font is "MESQUITE". I tried to download it but I guess you have to pay for it.

This brings me to another question... How do you pay for and download fonts? Do you pay a monthly fee to use it? Do you pay the 20$ and thats it, you have it for good?

Also, is there a place to download this font for free or is it only for sale?

You pay the $20 and that's it - you have it for good. It usually comes as a zipped TrueType font file (sometimes several variations of the font will be included in the zip file like Bold, Narrow, Medium, etc.). Unzip it, and drop it into the Font folder (for Windows users you go Start > My Computer > C: Drive > Windows > Fonts). Once you add it to the Font folder it should be active and available for use with all your various programs.
