I know a lot of editors like to put the green trailer title card at the beginning of trailers for their edits ("this preview has been approved for all audiences etc.").

Just FYI in case anyone is curious, the font usually used in the title card for theatrical releases is a condensed version of Helvetica Medium. The font for the "PREVIEW" and "AUDIENCES" is a slightly condensed Helvetica Black. It also looks like sometimes there is a slight shadow added to the font. In some recent trailers it appears that a different font is used. But Helvetica appears to be the "classic" one.

And for what it's worth, if you don't have Helvetica, the Arial family is very close. Most wouldn't notice the difference. :)

I'm going to be adding a Downloads section soon (maybe a different name) that will include variations of these graphics, as well as the FE.org intro animation AvP created. Figure a section where editors can easily access these files would be good.

Yep, I think that is a great idea.

I just added some Green and Blue Band Title Cards with the Helvetica font to the Resources Page (thread).
