Paper Leaf will shift to fully remote work effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020. That means our last day in our physical office space, for the time being, will be today (March 16, 2020).

A whole world of possibilities are opened up by this feature – no more relying on Arial, Verdana, Georgia and all the other “web safe” fonts.

Welcome to February, all! Hopefully the coldest of the bitter cold in your town is gone. It might be gone here in Edmonton, but who knows? It was minus 40C before it was even officially winter this year. GO CANADA. Anyway, as promised, here is the second installment of our Monthly Calendar Wallpapers. This image […]

Ampersands are cool. Each typeface’s ampersand says a lot about its personality; it says a lot about how the typeface should be used. Some are smooth & classy; others are bold and blocky.
