Please no more Papyrus

Please no more Papyrus

By Dom Moreci

This is a formal request to all small business owners: Please look beyond your default Windows fonts when you create your logo, signage, business cards, label, or yellow pages ad.

You only get one chance to set yourself apart...

And if I see one more Indian or Vietnamese restaurant using Papyrus on their sign I'm going to hurl my pho all over the place. Seriously.

There is no reason to limit yourself to Tahoma, Verdana, or Book Antiqua.

And God save your soul if you use Comic Sans for anything other than, you know, a really bad comic.

I mean, even Papyrus doesn't use papyrus.

Simple suggestion: go to Staples or Office Depot and pick up one of those font packs. Or go online and look for some new free fonts. Please!
