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!

Is it just me or is this font not used for almost every person campaigning this year? I drive around town and see way too many posters with the same font over and over again. It's gotten to the point that I am so fed up with seeing Copperplate on the side of the road that I don't even really read the messages anymore.
