Getting the Critters

If you want to adopt the entire colony in printable form (bless you), you can download it in a single PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file:

If you’re selective about what you want to let into your home or send out into the world, use the Adoption Form to choose the Logozoa you want.

Printing the Critters

The texts are formatted for printing on either of these standard printable labels:

Avery Removable ID Labels (3-1/3 by 4 inches; #6462 or #6464). We recommend removable labels because they can be easily removed from any surface and leave behind no residue when peeled off. You don't have to worry about damaging or defacing property and you can usually reposition a label several times—if, for example, you want it to follow you from place to place. Unfortunately they don’t always adhere well to rough surfaces, such as asphalt, concrete, or tree bark. They are available in packages of 10 sheets of 60 labels (Avery #6462, carried by Office Depot stores) or 25 sheets of 150 labels (Avery #6464, available from Staples online).

Avery Mailing Labels (3-1/3 by 4 inches; #5164 or #5264). These labels are available in most stationery and office-supply stores and are cheaper than their removable counterparts. They can be used only once, and unless they are peeled off immediately, they are difficult to remove from most smooth surfaces, such as glass or painted wood. Windex or alcohol may be required to dissolve the adhesive. They come in sheets of 25 (Avery #5264) or 100 (Avery #5164).

About Their Appearance

These textual organisms are embodied by the font Trebuchet, designed by Vincent Connare. The designer named the font after a type of medieval catapult, underscoring his goal of “launching words across the Internet.”

Care and Feeding

Logozoa feed on human attention. They go into a quasi-dormant state in between feedings to preserve their fragile metabolisms, so they are not fully alive when not being read. Beyond the occasional feeding, they require no special care.
