I am having a senior moment!
You know on fancy lettering the swirls added to the letters? What on earth do you call those swirls? It is driving me mad!  Shocked

Is serif the word you're looking for?  Letters are either serif or san serif.  Serif would be Times Roman and sans serif would be like Arial.

Having just bought a font that includes both a regular version and two with these, the word is swash.  Aren't senior moments just the bees knees?   Grin

Ah thanks, it was swash. I kept thinking swatch, and I knew it was wrong!
