If there is a member out there with skills in identifying and measuring printing fonts, I would be glad to hear from them to assist with an MSG research project.

I might be of some help. Could you describe this challenge a bit more?

Thanks for responding to my appeal.

The challenge is to definitively identify the fonts used in creating some 60 different registration labels types used in Singapore. Up to four different fonts may appear on a given label, but many labels may use the same font for a given element, so the overall task is not quite as big as it first sight.

We are in the early stages of preparing a third edition of the Singapore Post Offices and Registration Labels book.

This sounds like something I could help with.

I would caution that 'definitively' identifying a font may be too much to ask, as fonts were created in an unregulated fashion, and there are sometimes multiple names for what may be essentially the same font, as well as various fonts that may have the same name. But helping to differentiate between, and give a name to, the fonts in use on registration labels should be doable.
