Special labels for series fiction September 13, 2006

ES- 030

The human brain processes images something like nine times faster than it does words. A series logo such as “American Girl” or “Animal Ark” is instantly recognizable by adult and child alike.

It takes a little extra trouble to make these specialized shelf labels (here, at Essex), but to a beginning reader, it’s probably worth it.

Three ways:

  1. Find the series logo on the Internet, copy it into Microsoft Word (or a graphics program), print on a color printer, and trim.
  2. Scan the logo from a book, import it into Word (or a graphics program), print, and trim.
  3. Color copy the logo from a book or other promotional materials, print and trim.
