Haha. Thanks! I only use Gimp (free photoshop like software). Those two were probably the hardest ones I've made so far. I had to make the Starbuck's logo myself. My other ones are fairly easy. I just find a main picture on Google Image search, and then a texture for the background. I then look at dafont.com for a fitting font. I'm no graphics designer or anything. Like I said, having a template makes it a lot easier.

Excellent website! I never knew I wasn't "stuck with" the fonts the came with the software I was using at the time. Thanks!

You're welcome. I like them because you can do a preview of your word in the different fonts while searching.

Yep - Boston City Hall by Kallman/McKinnell (1968). Certainly a style that is hard to love, but I can't say that we'd ALL agree with you. I wrote about it in school and used to stay across the street when working in Boston. And to keep things on topic, I sure miss travelling to Boston to stop in at Cambridge Brewing and Lord Hobo.

+1 for the redirect. One of my haunts was Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston. They had 200+ beers on tap, an it was within stumbling distance of my apartment. I think I must've kept the place going singlehanded. I don't miss a lot of things about Boston, but one of them is definitely Sunset.

Cheers!

Lord Hobo was my favorite place when I lived in Somerville. Miss it plenty - but the New World Tavern here in Plymouth is pretty great, too!

Not studying it now, but I did for about four years. I did Hebrew as well as some other Ancient Semitic languages. From what I can tell, beer played a pretty big role in ancient Babylonian society!
