    I've been trying to find this font for 2 days online and can't find it. I'm trying to re-work this logo into a logo for my son's Halloween costume but I'm no graphic artist or good with what font's go with what. I have Corel x3 and that's what I've been working in trying to get this to look halfway decent. Would any of you out there happen to have any ideas on what this font is or ideas on what I do to improve this logo? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    His costume will be an Ice Cream Truck. This logo will be embroidered on the side of the truck. The font I'm trying to figure out is the part that says "ICE CREAM". Any suggestions on anything not looking right?

    This is the original logo:

    This is how I'm changing it:

    i think it looks great the way you've got it ;) should make for a cool custom costume for your son - just one question... when he shows up to folks' doors will he be giving out ice cream in exchange for candy? :D

    for me, the font on Jake's doesn't quite mesh with the rest of the design..

    it feels bottom heavy overall, and the Jake's font doesn't feel as nostalgiac as the rest of the logo...

    Jake's looks more 1980s and the rest of the logo feels more modern retro or 1960s spinoff....

    the transformation reminds me of the mom and pop donut shops that buy an old Winchells and instead of coming up with a new brand, they change one letter and call the place Minchells but keep the original design...

    Nope this is a one way deal. lol

    Yeah that was the first place I tried.

    Yeah that what I was feeling when I first made it. I just saw the replies and it was kinda late by that time so I went with it. It turned out pretty good I think. Thanks for the replies guys!

    Final is posted in this thread:
