A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the saying goes, but when it comes to advertising a business or product, the way the words are written is equally important. 

Signs, product packaging and even clothing can be ruined by using the wrong font, and perhaps it’s even on purpose by an underpaid graphic designer.

Art is what now? This packaging appears to include quite an unexpected message

No parent is letting their child visit here! Surely someone must have noticed during the design process, or at least the buyer when they put it their window 

Is it Forty Liquors? Or Farty Liquors? Perhaps it’s better not to enter this store in the US to find out, unless you’re willing to brave the hangover 

Wise words! This life advice sounds a bit twee, but if you misread the final word it turns rather more seeds 

Even if you speak Polish, the layout of this sign and the shadows it creates is a visual nightmare 

Bunch of badness! This pub in Pontypridd has an unusual way of adveritsing its wares
