I work for a sign company and have a client who wishes to make a sign for his new location, unfortunately he is unable to provide the TTF which was previously provided by London.  Attached is a copy of labels produced for his business but that company is currently out of business.  Any help is appreciated.

The type is an old Letraset design from 1977 named Melissa Inline (sometimes spelled Mellissa). During the era when it was current, it was available as a 2-inch film font. I can not find a digital version. Even Monotype, who now owns Letraset, doesn't have it.

If your client needs it for a sign, the best bet is to have a commercial artist redraw it from the printed label. Then you would have a permanent copy of the logo in digital form.

::edit::

I found a source for the alphabet for you: http://tinyurl.com/jnxfymb

That is eBay in the UK. It is Letraset rub-down letters and appears to have all the characters. With that you can recreate the logo or even make your own font using it. Note there are two listings: one for the lowercase and one for the capitals.

I tried to send you a private message but you apparently have that feature turned off.
