Papyrus Seasons Condos

We got this sent from someone on the inside, so we'll keep your name anonymous just in case, but feel free to leave us a comment if you want. It kind of looks like a really nice place if the Papyrus-laden website didn't make me question their originality and quality.

Papyrus Keys at Lowes

A bit of a blurry pic from our friend Chris, but he knows his Papyrus. Found at Lowes too, so watch out...your significant other may one day soon bring home some new keys...

Papyrus tax papers

Well then...from our mailbag, how to make tax time even worse? Getting your tax papers in Papyrus, just like Jon did. Looks terrible, and surely not a "New!" "Online!" kind of font.

John sent us this book telling us it was a fun book to read and is compared to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. But he quotes
The inside of the book is ugly, too. It appears to be printed on a bubble jet printer that was running low on toner. Sometimes, periods are followed by double spaces.
It definitely looks like one of those books.

Design and Typographic Principles for the Visual Novice

Seriously? Wow. This must actually be a modified version of Papyrus, or heavily influenced, but clearly designed by non-designers too. Priya discovered this gem on (geez, I wish I had an affiliate account, I could make a fortune off this link ;)

To be a bit fair, although I wish I didn't have to be, the date on that book is 1994 and it looks like it was probably made before the everyone and their daughters' nephews started using Papyrus for their business identities. But still...the irony.

It's Papyrus

That is, "pa-py-rus". Do you know anyone that says "pap-rus"? The y is not silent! We know a couple people, actually, maybe three now... So yeah? Papyrus!

Check off "likes it" if you're money's on "pa-py-rus", or
Check off "unacceptable" if you honestly think it's "pap-rus".

An Intimate Experience

Ah, imagine going there and having to  pretend you didn't feel awkward? This is just what Papyrus is all about. Thanks for sending this shot in Austin, I hope you didn't have to experience it first hand.

Now that looks like a high-quality organic product. Our good friend Lanna got this and I wish I was eating it right now. Maybe even 20 minutes ago. I mean look at's totally just dried fruit and nuts glued together in a bar form, all wrapped up in a nice little package to show off the product. Yet with all this emphasis on quality, somehow they ended up signing off with Papyrus.

Freely you have received Papyrus

And freely Don has given us another example of Papyrus in church-related print. What can I say, religious folks love it.
