susbtitute for Papyrus

Clients have presented me with a current file that includes the business name rendered in Papyrus. They are open to "some" change. Any suggestions about a font that will help cure them of this horrible addiction?

Thanks,
Michael

I made a list of Papyrus Alternatives for just such an occasion. Let me know what you think.

I guess it depends up the market. But, Frenzy Sans and Peanut Sans both bare some similarity to Papyrus.

Good additions, Tiff. Updated the list.

I thought of another one, Galahad.

I really like that Galahad font Tiffany. I must admit I'm a sucker for alternatives and the alternative ligatures in there are simply awesome; especially that double 'g.' I do wish the edges weren't so rough though, but I suppose this IS a "Papyrus Alternative" thread.

Greymantle has the rough edges too.

Thank you folks! You are the best. Great list several really nice options there and I think Gallahad can work in a number of situations. thanks, again, Michael

I'm just throwing this out there, but how about Fortunaschwein . Although, I've been having difficulties getting it to work in Flash CS3. It's free though. Google it.

Grab a low quality pen or pencil and photocopy the result?

Papyrus makes me want to drive staples into my forehead. Nobody should ever need an explanation of why this font sucks.

Sorry I don't have any suggestions for alternatives. I try to stay as far away from Papyrus as possible.
