For The Love of Type: Mixed Sentiments

Hello Everyone, Jenn here again with another post focused on typography. In my last post I shared how to create your own unique sentiments using the variety of Alphabet Stamps Sweet Stamp Shop has. Today I want to share with you how to create unique sentiments by mixing sentiments from different sets.

Sweet Stamp Shop has so many fun sentiments in their sets that the possibilities are endless. Here I mixed the “Happy Birthday” from Juggling Act and the “Say What?” from Just The Basics.

When you are mixing fonts and sentiments it is nice to have one be a sans serif font while the other can be a serif or script etc. Serif’s are decorative flourishes at the end of a stroke, and sans serif is without these. Just think of it as a fancy font with a simple font.

A perfect example of this is the mix of sentiments given in the Artsy Fartsy set. “Birthday Wishes” is a script and “Artsy Fartsy” is a sans serif, a simple font.

I have one more example of this for you over on my blog shurkus.com. Be sure to visit. If you haven’t already “like” Sweet Stamp Shop on Facebook and follow us on Instagram! You don’t want to miss out on anything right?
