I know this is probably the stupidest question ever, but here goes.  I see incredible works of art all the time that have some form of writing on them in a font that I recognize as one on my computer.  Do these people really hand paint it to look exactly like a particular font or is there some way to transfer it on to wood with out having to hand paint?  Please help.  I really would love to know because it just looks tooooo perfect!  Thanks!

I think it would depend from piece to piece.  Some people may do a transfer of sorts, but some people would hand paint it.  I learned typography at university, and can draw fonts fairly accurately by hand.  It just takes some time, concentration and a steady hand.
