Papyrus Magazine

Papyrus Magazine

I knew it. Every time I was in the magazine store I looked, because I knew it was there. Homeschooler's Guide, Winter 2009. Gah!

Avatar is Papyrus?

This December, Papyrus hits the big screens. David caught James Cameron (or some oblivious designer) using Papyrus for the new Avatar movie. He even shows us how it's could be done in a few steps in 8 minutes in Photoshop.
Yeah, and can we do the poster and stuff with that font on all the Asian restaurants down at the mall? I love that font!
We've received several submissions and tweets about this recently when the trailer was released. So there we have it. More Papyrus making it's way into major productions. But, there are people noticing, it's getting too far out of hand. And don't movies usually have their own custom fonts? I mean c'mon, this is a pretty intense looking multi-million-dollar production. Anyway, there it is. I guess James Cameron just really loves Papyrus.

Thanks to everyone who pointed this out to us.

Papyrus Potatoes

No, not another way to prepare potatoes unfortunately. Rather, a shot sent in by Paul of a potato package featuring the food market's fastest-growing font.

Seattle Bicycle Music Fest Posteriffic Poster!

Seattle BMF Shop Flyer

John snags us this gem of a poster for the Seatle Bicycle Music Fest. I actualy think I like this poster aside form the Papyrus, extra points for using the word "gazillions" (but -1 for spelling it wrong, even thought it's not an actual number). Also included in the email was this fun little ASCII art bike which I will also share:

Halifax Beerfest

Awwww there was Papyrus at the Halifax Beerfest. But I didn't drink it. Can you find it?

Halifax beerfest Papyrus

The Halifax Beer Festival on the Peir had many beers, and only one Papyrus. Not really surprised by the sighting considering there were supposedly 140 different beers...but there's always one...

Let the judgement flow...

Introducing...the quickpoll thingy! Now everyone can vote on whether any of the usages of Papyrus here are flat out unacceptable, forgivable (charities or developing nations), or *gasp* you like it (haven't noticed it everywhere you go...yet).

PS: Badge added for a dash of irony ;)

PPS: You can even vote on this post...great!

Papyrus + McDonalds II

mcdonalds in hawaii

McDonalds is at it again, as Kristen points out form Hawaii. This time thought it appears to be at the store-level rather than this corporate blunder of McDonalds Chipotle Papyrus ads.

Papyrus in Second Life

Papyrus second life

Here we have a Papyrus sighting in Second Life, among other hilarities. Looks like you can't escape this font anywhere, in any life. I find everything about this picture hilarious actually, and swear I saw that hat move more than once, and no this isn't an animated gif. Thanks a lot to Grant for sending this in.

Papyrus sightings on the Pacific Coast

digging the truth


Joe snapped these Papyrus shots during a trip along the Pacific Coast. We seem to be getting a lot of Papyrus sightings lately, which kind of surprises me. Anyway, thanks Joe, totally understand your frustration, it's like being in a craft store in the candle section (if that doesn't make sense it will soon, trust me).

Cambidian Papyrus

cambidian internet cafe

cambodian internet cafe

Now this is one of my all-time favourites! Our friendsStef and Lanna got this from an Internet cafe in Cambodia. Definitely a home print job here, complete with the Internet Explorer logo to top it all off. It's probably IE6, so they kinda almost fit together.

Vintage Papyrus Charm


Ah, Cottage by the Bay, some fine decor with that vintage charm. Papyrus, though, I wouldn't consider vintage, the days of writing on papyrus as in paper, I would say is more "ancient". And the font itself is from the 80's, so...yeah.

And the second screenshot from Sam is of an Alan Rickman discussion forum. I doubt he would approve of this.
