More iPad Papyrus in AirGuitar


Our friend Nathan spotted this in the "Help" popover in the AirGuitar iPad app. Funny, because this is one of the first things I downloaded on the iPad and it was so horrible I never got around to finding it. Now PocketGuitar for iPhone on the other hand...

Bora Bora!


Andrea pointed out that the folks at Tahiti Sun Travel have sites set up for Bora Bora and surrounding islands. They're probably not too concerned and out enjoying the tropics...I dunno, I'd go there, it looks damn gorgeous. I mean just ask this guy:

Business, Technology, Service


An anonymous submission for a sighting at Lewis-Clark State College is in Lewiston, Idaho. The sender stated his concern of Papyrus not representing business, technology, or service. I concur. Although it is used an awful lot to represent businesses.

Paiste Papyrus


Another shot form Nathaniel, he tells us these are some pretty high-end cymbals. Yet another big brand falls victim...

Clayton Fine Fonts


Eric snapped this pic of a 100% Papyrus real estate sign. If you check their website they do actually have some fine looking homes, albeit a brutal website and a tacky ***What we offer*** link that's actually a PDF that they put through the rub across a dirty floor filter a few times.

Certified Papyrus


It's like lululemon meets Gap in Manila, Philippines. Thanks Paolo.

Ovation HD TV Papyrus Colors!


Yeah! This TV is probably about as rad as they make it out to be.

PDF to Papyrus


Jeff pointed us at this PDF to image converter, so we gave it a shot. The first thing I didn't like, from a usability perspective, was the black-on-red filename text. And then gah! How untechnological. Perhaps they equated Papyrus with paper, and turning paper info an image? Even that logic isn't entirely sound. But once I downloaded my file (on a Mac) it was a .zip file which I found unnecessary, but then it unzipped to a .cpgz (whatever the hell that is)...which opened as a .zip...which opened as a .cpgz...you see the problem here.

Hearing Essentials


This coupon was found by Nathaniel in one of those junk mail promo envelopes we all love (I actually always check them out for fun). I'm not surprised to see Papyrus here at all, in fact I'm surprised the font isn't used more often on these things.

Papyrus. It'll shut you down for renovations


Nathan nabbed us this shot of a pizza place, Racanelli's Cusiana (or Racanelli's Papyrusiana if you will) that closed for renovations and after two years ends up with this...a giant metal Papyrus monstrosity of a sign. And according to Nathan they are closed yet again for renovations...I'm warning you...

Everyone's favorite font



Daniel and the folks over at Boom Creative share their take on Papyrus. Great vid, great advice. A rare sighting indeed ;)

Science Works...



...but Papyrus doesn't really work as a font for science, unless it's Egyptian archeology, maybe. Thanks to Jon for sending this in, I got a bit of a lol out of the shirt.
