You got away lightly then.I realised too late that 'kerning' is a mystical process that requires the blood of an innocent, the sweat of thousands and the tears of a fair maiden.
Papyrus is appealing? Oh crap, maybe I need to rethink this whole font thing, because I obviously have no clue
Lol....I used Papyrus in our wedding invitation. Looking at it now the kerning is horrible, but I still think the letter forms give a good Edwardian conservatory feel (which is what I wanted to go for). I think (not sure) it probably got overused because it was one of the very few decorative fonts which shipped installed with an early version of Ms Word. Comic Sans is the other one which comes in for criticism for over and inappropriate use. I actually know a lawyer who composes all his emails in comic sans.
Aww, sorry Ravs, didn't mean to diss your wedding invitations! A lawyer using comic sans for his emails though? eeeewww....
LOL! It was a long time ago when I wasn't old enough to know better....the design I mean, not the decision to get married!!!
I love mac'n'cheese.
Edited the top post to fix a bug that stopped the font from rendering correctly in Microsoft Office and Wordpad.
The "problem" with papyrus is overuse.
You will find it on 90% of the labels for homeopathic stuff, massage therapists, health centers, etc. It's a new-age thing, I think.
