Take-Along Papyrus Bible



Something about this just extenuates the lameness. I dunno, leave your thoughts on this one. Thanks Nathan for this and good eye, there are more from him.

Oil Filtering?



I really don't know what this is? Ok it's oil filtering stages, but wow. Cooking oil to running a car, and it's nearly unreadable. It's appalling in every way. Not only is it horrifying to look at, add Papyrus then attempt to make it 3D in some spots reminds me of WordArt but worse. Thanks Jesse for posting this atrocity on our Facebook Page (you can be a fan and help spread the good...or bad..word of Papyrus).

New Fortune Chinese



Christopher snapped us a brochure for New Fortune Chinese feature Papyrus as their main logo font. There's a ton of different fonts going on there, actually. I've been to some cheap restaurants and take out places...a lot of which likely make their own menus and brochures. This is likely one of them, and well, I'm really not especially stoked on this place now, but I would eat it, and I wish I was eating it right now.

Disney, for shame



Well, apparently this shot is from a Disney mailbox. Truly for shame, and almost unbelievable. Either Papyrus is becoming a favourite among highly credible graphic designers or the economy is hitting an all-time low and seriously skimping on graphics and typography people. Thanks to @justinpaix for sending us this disappointing sighting. Also he says to check out the hidden Mickey ;)

Frisk brod! Papyrus from Denmark

"The SZ" sends Papyrus Watch this shot found while in Denmark. Looks like a pretty good bakery, aside form Ms. Enthusiastic. Not sure on the Papyrus usage situation in Denmark but I still wouldn't recommend it. It's kind of neat to see the special crossed "o" character though.

From this so-called "Turistguide":

Sounds of October


Another among several Papyrus sightings sent in by Chris. He nabbed it from a Yankees Playoff game, looks like it was TIVO'd or something, very handy. I wonder if maybe it's locally-targeted, this sign couldn't be national could it?

NBC? no...


Yeah, there it is. I can't realy believe it, but that's not fake, right Chris? He sent it in. I don't see how that can be on NBC.com unless someone slipped it into an ad rotation from a third party...or something complicated.

Certificate of Papyrus


Imagine getting this as a thank you to your hard work? Apparently this is from lawbook.com which looks like it's chalk-full of fun online courses. This one for Supervisor Anti-Harassment sounds especially exciting. Thanks to Loid for sending this shot, and sorry for your disappoint, we feel your pain.
