How to identify a font?

Does anyone know a solution?
several years ago I designed a poster - I have a printed copy but, alas, the original seems no longer to be on my computer.
I now need to produce several others and I want to use the same "pattern " as before, but so far I haven't been able to identify the main font I used .
Is there a quick way to do this?
Can't be sure either, whether I used Word or Publisher, so the font in question may be in either.

If you can post a photo of the printed copy, someone might know. Otherwise, how can anyone guess which font it it?!

Take the pic, host it on click here & post the resultant link here.

For privacy reasons (if applicable), I'd suggest editing prior to hosting it so only a few non-sequential words are visible. G

Word and Publisher use the same fonts.
If you scan it into an OCR program it may come up the nearest font.

If you tell us what program you wrote it in it might help along with Crossbows sugestion.

thank you both.
In the last few minutes, by pure chance I've discoverd the font I used - it's Maiandra GD. So immediate problem solved but I'll keep a note for future reference, and likewise of your suggestions.

thanks Sea Urchin - had time for only a quick look so far, but I'll add that to my list.
