click to see the culprit! We hate Copperplate. To us, two humble Graphic Designers in the heart of Texas, it's become one of the most overused and incorrectly used fonts in America. Don't believe us? We're willing to bet that there are at least two items in your house at this very moment that use Copperplate. They are likely food items.

Our mission is to document Copperplate's virus-like domination of the typography world. The photos here include true Copperplate examples, as well as mutant offshoots that are the result of mentally ill desktop publishers.

Most of the posts here are captured in the moment on our mobile phones, hence the "iffy" quality of some pictures. Photo dumps usually occur when we've been using a real camera, so we have to post later; all the photos will then get dumped into one m-m-m-mega post.

Copperplate is EVERYWHERE. See for yourself!

What the

I'm not sure why, but Sprint PCS decided to mess with my photos. A few days ago, if you'll notice further down the page, my images were camera phone quality but a good size, and cropped to JUST the photo. Now there's a white border on the top and bottom and it looks crappy.

So until I can get a better phone, hopefully through T-Mobile, sorry for the weird camera phone pics!

Yes give us who have been slacking on picture-taking a chance to catch up. I meant to last time I went to the store, I really really did! I swear! Really!
