Just Add Ink # 267 – Just Add Typography

Now here’s a Challenge, if ever there was one…. Just Add Typography!

Firstly, when I saw this, I did not even know what it was.  So I had to go and look it up.


  1. the style and appearance of printed matter.
    • the art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing from it.

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language readable and appealing.

So this sound like a great Challenge to me.

Here is the card that I put together:

I figured that Birthday themed words were the ones I had the most of so that formed the theme of my card.  And thanks to the Stamp-a-ma-jig I got them all on the page.

To see the other examples of great Typography, visit the Design Team at Just Add Ink.

We look forward to you joining our Challenge this week.
