counterfeiting money? ;-) – Wolf Jun 18 '14 at 10:17
lool no ... is a thermal printing font. – blackice2x Jun 18 '14 at 10:19
You can always go to to upload a portion of your image and what the font will try to find best possible matches. Hope this will help you for your future font identification. – Nomadme Jun 18 '14 at 15:17

It's basically Courier:

Courier New

but produced on a fairly crude dot-matrix printer. The letter forms are a product of the way they are produced.

MyFonts has a number of dot-matrix fonts and Vactic might be a reasonable alternative which is quite close, if you don't want to create your own:

no (to your matrix font), look at the A – Wolf Jun 18 '14 at 10:42
@Wolf OK, "match" was meant to imply matched function (Courier-like dot-matrix) rather than an exact match in form. – Andrew Leach Jun 18 '14 at 10:45
Ok, I see. (Seems really Courier +1) – Wolf Jun 18 '14 at 10:47
Thanks ... basically Courier seems close inaf ... but with the dot part ... hmm ... the picture i uploaded are in zoom because if you are not looking close you don't see the dots. – blackice2x Jun 18 '14 at 10:55
the actual font dimension is 11. – blackice2x Jun 18 '14 at 10:57

Not sure that you will find it as a ready font. It was done via printing matrix. In past (when we need something similar) we just reconstruct it from circles and created own font.

:) now that is something that i can't do :) .. but thanks ..i'm still hoping. ... I found one that is similar..… ... but not the same. – blackice2x Jun 18 '14 at 10:25
It is completely another :) if you want to do it right - you need to reconstruct letters you need with dots to imitate matrix printing head. Paint bleeding will do all the rest for you. – Vnovak Jun 18 '14 at 10:27
Yep, it's a custom font. If anything - you can use Lexia or Foro Medium as a base. – MarcinWolny Jun 18 '14 at 10:31
thanks.... I'll see what I can do. – blackice2x Jun 18 '14 at 10:31
