Handrawn Text

We're just putting together our Christmas advertisements etc (we've got some amazing things happening!!!!) and rather than just use computer generated fonts we're using mostly handrawn text. It's quite a time consuming way to do things (it's just taken me a couple of seconds to type that - if I had to draw it it would take about 20 mins with scanning etc). It's definately worth it though, as the final output has a more interesting look - it's also more in keeping with what we are about. I would definately recommend drawing your own text - it makes you think more about what you are doing and the overall look of the piece (Checkout Mike Perrys handrawn text book - Hand Job - I think they sell it at Urban Outfitters)
