Where do I get the fonts used for my coupon?

Using Fireworks CS5, Can you tell me where to get the fonts for the attached coupon I had created? Just for the following text on the certificate:

This Certificate Entitles...

To First Hypnosis Session...

Not valid...

Bob, unfortunately the JPEG image of your document does not have any font information, you need to open up your document in FW and see what fonts it is complaining about. You can also go back to the person who created the document for you and ask what fonts were used.

Then, once you have the list of fonts that are missing, you can try to find out where you can acquire them from. If the are free fonts, you can try to find a download location, and if these are commercial fonts, you can find out where you can purchase these fonts. Chances are that if these are commercial fonts, you will pay a lot more for the fonts than what you've paid for creating this document.

There are a number of services available online that can help you to identify fonts, but you will very likely spend quite a bit of time on this:

For example:

http://www.whatfontis.com
http://www.identifont.com

Hi LHerrou,

I had the coupon created on fiverr.

Yes, I'm looking for the font names and where to get them.

Thank you,

Bob

Bob,

The THIS CERTIFICATE... font is Magistral OT (light or perhaps book)

You can get it here: https://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/paratype/magistral_light_multilingual_ot/

For the "Not Valid..." font on the sample you provided - it's a bit too small to make out the details.

Actually, I take that back, the R is wrong. But Magistral is close. Another close one is Nunito, which is available on the web.

http://www.myfonts.com/search/HACKMAN/fonts/ would even get you closer although it is not the correct font.
The font which is uses has rounded corners on F, E and L and the S is more squarish.

But why not settle for a new font this time since you are in the process of changing the card?

Not valid could be Myriad Pro Medium Italic and the bottom text is almost like Helvetica Neue, except for the numbers.

Same font as the head but italic version. Look at the rounded corner of the L.

This one is even closer, except it is missing the rounded corners.

I just checked these fonts out and they all cost money.

Which serves what I asked for, but since I only paid $10 for this coupon, is there a free font that comes close, or that comes with Fireworks CS5 which I am using? I didn't see any in Fireworks but I will look again.

Thanks!
