Samauri Jack is all about the Papyrus

Samari Jack

Previously...on "wow I can't belive no one's ever used this font before...."

Ok, so another one from Spencer who points out the whole show is riddled with Papyrus. For Samurai Jack, maybe, Papyrus is an ok fit. But in reality, it's the Papyrus that really kills it. Thanks Spencer for sending your shots to Papyrus Watch.

Twilight Edge Software

Twilight Edge Software
Spencer sends this screenshot to Papyrus Watch displaying Twilight Edge Software's website for their DDA converter. I don't know about you (actually I probably do) , but Papyrus is a pretty terrible match for a tech product like a Mac application. The rest of their site isn't half bad though (aside form that gradiented header piece).

Authentic French Papyrus

Planet Organic - Bakery

Another sighting by Nicola from the Planet Organic food store, Papyrus sure does seem to be a favourite of the organic food industry. Baguette!

Say Thank You with Papyrus

Duly Noted - Quinpool Rd 3

What better way to say thank you than with a font who's inner meaning has become empty due to heavy overuse.

Mystic Visions...of Papyrus

Mystic Visions 2009

Yet another example of Papyrus use on a calendar. Papyrus is really taking over the calendar.

Nature Patterns of Papyrus

Duly Noted - Quinpool Rd

Some notecards...naturally Papyrus. I hope it's just on the cover. Choosing Papyrus as the products default font is unfair to the customer. They can't force that on anyone.

Finally, a Good Use of Papyrus!

Pacer Papyrus

Friends of Papyrus Watch at The Pacer, school newspaper of the University of Tennessee at Martin sent in this lovely section on pet peeves. Their advertising manager/designer's pet peeve? Papyrus! Plus the notorious Comic Sans, along with what I call the Easter Font, Hobo Std.

I was told this was probably the first time Papyrus has ever appeared in their paper, and in this case I of course approve. Brilliant. Thanks for sending this in, we got a huge kick out of it.

Oh, and I also hate it when people take an elevator up one floor, unless they're in a wheelchair on or crutches or something.
