Merchandising

Simon

In a previous life, as well as bookselling I used to sell badges. I did OK from it, so well in fact that it was through this that I got my accountant, Damian, to sort out my accounts. He's great, and if anyone out there wants an accountant he's superb.
Anyway, back to the badges. We've been mucking around with fonts and styles and i've stuck a couple on badges. They could be all the rage soon......

Let us know what you think, although this is probably far from the final outcome.

By the way, if anyone out there wants some badges done at competitive prices, you know where to come.....

The one on the right, in upper case. Much easier to read.

I agree, the one on the right in capitals - its a friendlier font! Love reading the blog - its v interesting!

Shell said...

Akasha Savage said...

I agree with shell; the one on the left!

Joe Melia said...

Absolutely, the one on the left !!

Sabine said...

I also prefer the one of the left.
Don't know why, I just do.

Lower case, definitely! The font on the upper case version looks like the cover of some bad sci-fi novel circa 1971.

What womagwriter said!!

On the left; the right is too much of a retro-IT font which too many would make them think that the shop is something to do with computers.

Anyone else remember the BBC's Micro-Live?

Mark said...

The one on the right - definitely. But we need more choices!

Sticking with the bad 70s sci-fi theme, how about the Tomorrow People font. It's less extreme than the Micro Live font...

Lindsay said...

On the left definitely, the right one is far too Tomorrow's World

OK. It looks like we're going to have to get an opinion poll going. We'll sort out our 4 favourite fonts, and then let you decide which one to use.
Are we mad?? Possibly.
