Darkened text, added a subtle texture and played with the color some- hope this is easier to read!

Thanks :) @Oba- that's the plan :) The letters in Bebas share so many of the same lines that these actually come together pretty quickly!

lovely! one minimal suggestion - darken archer up just a little for on screen readability.

I think it could uses a bit more contrast overall. Is this the same O from your amazing Joy card? If so, it works just as well here and should definitely be made into a font! lovely!
