Fontage

Incorporating the dramatic fonts used in the design of the album cover being promoted, the designers of these fine stickers created a nice compliment sure to garner extra sales.



Used to promote Robert Plant's
top 20 hit
, this sticker furthers the classicmodern rock feel of the
album cover. Cool 80's pink lifted from the artful embellishments
found to the left of the photo...









up next, R&B top 20 hit from George Clinton...


Sticker gets a little lost
as cover is already quite busy






Up next, a foreign selection...



Nice gold foil sticker promoting the lovely Geula Gil's version of the "Jerusalem of Gold", which is a huge song in Israel...











OK, Heartlight was truly a smash hit, but I am working on a collection of promo stickers that grossly overstate a song or artist's importance...

Oh, you can almost see the matching sticker reaching out to make contact with the cover, only to be prohibited by the shrink wrap....we'll maybe you can't but I can...you can however reach out a click on any of these images to see them enlarged, which is sort of like getting a healing touch from ET.
or Neil...





A Bargain Bin favorite, with the matching ransom note fontage....



Good comp kiddies, pick it up next time you see it in the CLR section...that's insider lingo FYI...









Aaah....

A deviation...

Faux stickerage from Germany...



btw, "We Are Detective" was a big hit overseas, so in this case, there is no hyperbole in the use of this imitation promo sticker...






Finally, a perfect compliment to Hyaena's layout.  Dear Prudence was a huge success in the UK, but Dazzle and Belladonna are just great songs....
