In 1995 Microsoft released the font Comic Sans originally designed for comic book style talk bubbles containing informational help text. Since that time the typeface has been used in countless contexts from restaurant signage to college exams to medical information. These widespread abuses of printed type threaten to erode the very foundations upon which centuries of typographic history are built.
While we recognize the font may be appropriate in a few specific instances, our position is that the only effective means of ending this epidemic of abuse is to completely ban Comic Sans.
We understand font selection is a matter of personal preference and that many people may disagree with us. However, if you agree with our position, you can sign the online petition to ban comic sans.
Bancomicsans.com is new and improved using WordPress! The old site is still here minus some links and resources that have been moved over to the new site. More improvements will be coming soon, so check back often. We’re planning to add more sticker designs, free fonts, and interviews and articles to the archives. We welcome your comments and suggestions. Thanks, and have a Comic Sans-free day.bad font usage, bad typography, comic sans, fonts, humor, type, typography
