If you have an eye for design, whether it's print, web, mural or Airstream renovation (hehe) it is just another page with slightly different "rules".
I am in print advertising myself for FT career but design websites on the side and yeah, I agree. Dreamweaver is also my tool of choice for website design. I still design my pages using Photoshop for pure flexibility and then translate them into DW or Flash afterward, working out how to keep the same design integrity and integrate the functionality... Sorry to get this thread so off-topic.

After seeing a photo of Wallty's trailer with a nameplate on the inside to show when the door is open, I decided that one of the 1950's namplates like he used (using the font this thread is about) would look just fine in my 1983 Excella door. They are just the size for the door, and the art deco font looks just fine to me. I'm a big deco fan anyway. VTS had nameplates on sale this month, so I no longer had an excuse for not getting one.
Now I just need to locate a girl in a bikini to stand in my doorway like Wally did.
Here is a great website for this type of thing. In printing and graphic design it is very helpful at times. You can upload a scan of a typeface and it will try to match. If your not satisfied you can submit to other experts to see if they can find a match.
I know nothing about fonts, or graphic arts at all . Though I love to look at that art.
I like your set of "art deco" characters.
Am curious though why the H does not have a tail on the left side of cross-bar???
Also wish you would add an ampersand. [&] if you ever get the time.
Hi There...if you still have the Airstream font on your desktop, could you email me a copy? Thanks

Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, no one has made a font of the shapes. flyfshr put up a pdf with the shapes in an earlier post, but they haven't been made into a font. I'd like it myself. OpenType please.
It would be nice, but font making software is pricy and few people have much use for it.
