Well there are fonts which resemble it in some ways, but I've seen none which imitates Triplex Bold close to perfection.
Try searching on google for a similar font.

If its images you are editing, you can sort of fake it in photoshop by using a font like Arial Bold and applying faux bold to it.

I honestly dont know this. I guess you should experiment until you find a size which imitates it best, since you are faking it with another font.

Just thought I'd mention you can generate a sample character set as necessary... useful in a pinch, but of course you should still buy the font if you're going to use it in anything. :wink:

you can always just cut and paste the letters?
I do that, and just edit it a little, and boom, there you have it, your own button!

you could PM me what you want and i will see what i can do.

You could also get some images of the font and a font-creating program. :D
