Default What is the 'font' Volvo use?

I am trying to find the 'font' Volvo use in all their literature and advertising. Is it available so i could use it in Microsof Word, or indeed is it already available in MS Word?

Thanks

You mean the logo? A similar font is Egyptian EF Bold Extended. If you get it, can you send me a copy...?

Chances are that it will have been designed for Volvo rather than them picking a standard font.

Yes, it is a custom design. I've tweaked Times New Roman (stretch, bold, thickness) to get what you see in my signature. I know the 'v's aren't flat at the bottom, but I haven't yet learned to modify fonts properly....

Volvo designed about 10 fonts which they use for their material , copyrite remember .. Volvo are Hot on people using their fonts, they have chased up a few independants lately who are using Volvo fonts which may give the impression they are genuine volvo dealers ...

FYI, Volvo has a legal department that protects their marque from misuse and any other 'property' they own or have legal rights to. They do enforce this, as do other marque owners.

The Volvo Owners Club has some concessions for club publications and use. This does not extend to club members.

Blimey.....i never thought it would get as heavy as this. I just want it for my own personal use. No intention of advertising, selling or anything else like that.

BMW informed a friend of mine who has a garage that is a BMW specialist that they would take action against him for using there logo in his invoices and paperwork. He then had to stop immediately.
