Xerox Malfunction

Chloe with the letter XFor the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales

It has arrived – the worst day of the A to Z challenge – X day. *cue screaming and pulling of hair* On the good news front, the font website had more X fonts that I was expecting, almost 60 of them. But the bad news is most of them were pretty blah. But I did find a few I thought were fun to share. First up is Xtrusion. There have been many 3D fonts along the way, but most of them have been angular and blocky. I like how this one is all curves and rounded edges.
And then we have the complete opposite with Xacto Blade, all straight lines and odd angles to form letters as if cut with the short blade.

It’s probably too warm to be thinking about Christmas, but I still thought Xmas Lights was cool.

I can’t imagine actually using X-Cryption for anything, but I just love it because it’s another example of how our brains are able to interpret words made out of almost anything approximating our usual letters. 
Xerox Malfunction reminds me a bit of Cheap Ink Killed My Printer, it's just a different type of word-producing error. It’s also my tweet tale inspiration for today.

“I want to do it while being xeroxed,” hot boss slurs in his ear at company party. But machine won’t turn on, so she staggers off in a huff.
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How eXited is Chloe with her letter X?  (Actually I’m not sure what kind of eXpression that is on her face!)

Okay, you did awesome with the hair-pulling-out X day. Not sure I'd use them, but you have some cool fonts. Didn't think you'd find so many.

I laughed out loud at the Xerox Malfunction one. I don't know if I'd ever use it, but it's fun as a novelty!

Oh, I love Xtrusion and those Xmas lights are adorable! The Xerox one is really clever, but I can't see myself every using it for anything. :)

Xtrusion and Xerox are amazing. I could totally see the Xerox on being used for a Dystopian title. =)

To my surprise, it looks like Xerox is the winner of the day. Thanks for stopping by, everyone!

Xmas Lights is easiest on my eyes by far, though I love the uniqueness of X-Cryption. Last year I downloaded a really pretty, delicate, old-fashioned-looking X serif font called Xenon Medium. It has a slight late Victorian/Edwardian feel to the design of the letters, though I'd probably have to slightly size it up were I using it for a paper or book. Its 12-point size is a bit on the small and hard-to-read side, due to the way it's designed. It's a big contrast to some of my typewriter fonts, like Cassandre Graphika and Olympia Congress, which are huge at 12-point and need to be sized down to about 9-point to look normal.
