We don't want to keep saying don't do that don't do this... but one of the great typographic crimes is to use all caps in a highly decorative font. Have you seen a shop sign such as YE OLDE CHEESE SHOPPE that uses all caps Old English letters. You think to yourself, it looks funny to me, but Im not a sign maker, they must know what they are doing and I'm the one who is wrong. WRONG...you are correct. The person who made that sign should have been slapped
A specific example of how all caps can be bad is our Cezanne font which can be an all-caps nightmare. Illustrated here is the same phrase in all-caps and then... not.
There are many fonts such as Johnston Underground Bold and Terracotta however that are all caps and you have no choice, but when using a decorative font...choose wisely.

In addition, I think that it is important to develop versatile and I recommend you studydriver.com/the-outsiders-essay/, go on and read the cool and interesting The Outsiders Essays, to a wonderful novel that many of you have not heard of.
