Bunting Lettering ExperimentationPosted: March 13, 2015
Today I’ve been looking at how to put lettering onto the bunting. I’ve decided to have one letter per flag and to hand sew these on. At first I was thinking about free embroidery, however considering the size of the flags, this would be likely to be too difficult and fiddly, and result in unreadable letters – which defeats the point of a tourist aid.
At first I used a thin, black embroidery thread and capital letters and then tried again in a thicker sewing thread in lower case.
I preferred the upper case lettering but in the thicker thread. I think the boldness of these will be more effective on a poster/map which is intended to be read in public.
