  1. I think one of the reasons why it’s such a despised font is that it’s designed to look reminiscent of ancient Egyptian lettering, but it’s used for situations that aren’t trying to communicate ancient, Egyptian, or hand-crafted.

    I cringe every time I see Edible Arrangements – papyrus should be restricted to the under 12 demographic only. There is no instance where it tells the audience you are a professional with it.

    I was thinking very hard about using Papyrus for a new logo but got put off with some current uses and the fact that as a will writing professional it was just missing something. I thought it would convey a hand written approach but look professional as well, but I feel it was just too much off the beaten track for what I wanted. For this reason I went for Trajan Pro which is more professional but also better proportioned.
