Vaughn Split Outer Roll + PVE Graphic

Essentially, the Vaughn logo was possibly created by a graphic artist with it's own unique font made specifically for that project, as that happened a lot. The entire alphabet was not made, literally just the letters needed to make the logo, though some artists did make the entire alphabet if the font were going to be used for other things than just the logo. That was how things were done. Most likely since the old camera-ready art never went into the digital age and the old screens to print those logos are long-gone or unusable, so they just used a digital font closest to the original logo font. Close, but not quite right. The other explanation can be that the original font used for the Vaughn logo was a common print font but was replaced by an updated font. Some fonts when digitised did not translate with the subtle elements and nobody bothered to correct the missing elements.  I would hope that if Vaughn were serious about putting their old logo onto pads and such that they would do it right. But then again- they insist on using a Cooper GM-12 hole pattern for a “retro” Vaughn blocker, even though they copied John Brown using a smooth-faced blocker as their OG blocker “graphic” or lack there-of. 

One of my customers is a graphic arts professor and explained this to me when I was trying to get my Cooper/Pooper logos done. The Cooper/Pooper project has been a pipe dream for a long time as I was going to have a former employee of the old Christian hockey stick factory build me wooden goalie sticks that I was going to tag as Cooper, then it was explained to me that the original Cooper logo was not a font. Then the guy stopped returning everyone’s emails so that dream ended. Of course Pooper was for something completely different before becoming my lifestyle/awareness brand. @parabele actually made the Pooper logo for me. My professionally-sourced heat transfer logos are actually a font approximated to the Pooper logo font. Close, but no cigar; however, the difference is MUCH more subtle than with the new-old vs. old Vaughn logos. 

The free software that came with my Cricut is very sophisticated in that I can photograph a graphic element and cut out the extras and turn it into a simple vector file. I even was able to turn a picture of Johnny Bower into a cool silhouette. 

Probably more than you wanted to read about this, but when a graphic arts professor explained it to me, it all makes sense why. It was two hours of listening to her about graphic arts; thankfully she was interesting whilst explaining!

I have great respect for those that pay attention to typography closely 😁

@southpawtendy48 Drool for days. 

It does look disjointed on these pads, but when matched with the next color over I'm a huge fan of split outer rolls. Obviously  I regretted not doing it on my V6 set and so glad I did on th

On the red and black Legacy set, the right side of the U is twice the width of the left side.  On the modern baby blue set, they are the same.  Ditto for the H, just reverse for the sides.

They are different logos? The bullseye one has sans serif font. The Maine set has a handwriting style that mimics the Moog era logo? I am definitely missing this one...

oh, i thought the original idea was that the logos were supposed to be identical.  If they are not supposed to be, then there's no issue. 

@cwarnar noticed it was "Off", as in not like the original...I assumed.

I'm not seeing the problem here either.  Your comparing the font of the logos on the 2019 navy/baby blue set to the font of the logos on the 90s black and red set...they're not the same font, why would they be the same?  The font of the navy/baby blue set is more similar to the black and yellow set that TGN posted.
