  • Font suggestions for a hippie health food store

    I have to knock out a quick ad for a hippie health food store and would like to use something other than their first choice of Zapf Chancery.

    Thanks.

    Anyone who suggests Papyrus wins a bucket of fail.

    Ouch, Zapf? Really? Hmmmm, I searched DaFont.com for hippie fonts but that was full of fail.... maybe some of these would work in place of Zapf. Good luck!

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

      I forgot to mention that they didn't even spell the name of their business correctly:
      Grainery rather than Granary.

      I think I'm going to go have a short cry.

      Thanks for the suggestions. I'm thinking of going all Celtic on them with Sweeney and Sweeney Linocut

        Are you looking for a font for the body copy of the ad? What does their logo look like?

        For body copy, I usually go for something very desecrate and sans serif.
        It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" – Winnie the Pooh

          It's this. I just am going to extract the logo and make a new headline and put the body in a sans face like Avenir or Gill Sans

          Now, I'm thinking Sweeney is over the top.

            Are they something you are trying to right click?
            That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

            Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

            Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
            I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
