Lancashire Ipsum

Champion Filler Text Handcrafted In Lancashire

What Is Lancashire Ipsum?

In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is a filler text commonly used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation. Replacing meaningful content with placeholder text allows graphic designers and website designers to design the form of the content before the final written content itself has been produced.

The lorem ipsum text is typically a scrambled section of De finibus bonorum et malorum, a 1st-century BC Latin text by Cicero, with words altered, added, and removed to make it nonsensical, improper Latin. Lancashire Ipsum replaces the nonsensical faux latin, with colloquialisms that originate from the county of Lancashire, it's towns, cities and villages.

A variation of the ordinary lorem ipsum text has been used in typesetting since the 1960s, when it was popularized by advertisements for Letraset transfer sheets. It was introduced to the Information Age in the mid-1980s by Aldus Corporation, which employed it in graphics and word-processing templates for its desktop publishing program PageMaker.

Thanks to leading Lancashire based graphic design agency and website designers Quentin James Design, Lancashire Ipsum has been developed to be used in the design, publishing and creative sectors, both in Lancashire and beyond.
