However a few like the Texas Tech and Utah ones are straight from the Under Armour catalog. The same can be said for a few of the Nike ones I have like Miami, Va Tech, etc.

Where would one find these catalogs?

The internet. :grin:

Check the respective manufacturers' "team" pages. Identity guides can also be a good source.

When you talk abouth the "team" pages, is this what you're referring to?

Is there a way to install .ai files so they are avaliable for straight-up typing with the keyboard like .ttf files for Photoshop CS5?

nope, not possible. u have to manually bring the vectors into a font-creating program with a character-by-character process.

Those are two entirely different types of files, for entirely different purposes.

In order to use a font, you need the file in a font format. The most common font formats are Open Type (.otf), True Type (.ttf), and Postscript (many different file extensions, common ones are .pfa, .pfb, and even .font).

Your question seems to be asking how to convert vectors from an Adobe Illustrator file (.ai) into a usable font.

You need a commercial font generating program, like FontLab, or some other online generators. You need to copy the vectors from the .ai file and import them into the font generating program, or onto some template the program provides.

There's no easy instructions for how to do this specifically...you'll have to Google it.

Yep, and factor in doing metrics and kerning and a hundred other settings it's kind of a pain in the butt. The results are fun, though.

Sorry guys but I started this dang near a year ago. I am incredibly busy with work and school. I don't have the time at the moment to do concepts/put together resources that I once had. It's a never ending and thankless job. Once the floodgates are open requests never end. If I had time I'd be more than willing. The fonts are out there!
