Word Shapes

Text hand-printed along the outline of a shape offers a creative way to include a message in your design.

  1. Draw the shape first with a light pencil line.
  2. Print your words in ink along the edge of the shape.
  3. Erase the pencil line.
  4. Photo-copy or scan the new text image and combine it with other design elements.

This cachet for an event cover was paired with stamps from the Classic Aircraft issue.
