 I often hear these as possible explanations, either seriously or In jest, for the slanted decals on Canadian lantern founts.  Not long ago I saw an old Coleman advertisement with the slanted logo, but I forgot where.  Today I found this advertisement in a 1969 Laacke &Joys catalogue.  I guess it was part of their marketing to sometimes display the logo on a slant.  I guess it could have been more prevalent in Canada?  maybe everyone else already knew this.  I did not.

I'd be willing to bet the layout person owned a lantern with an already slanted decal......

Or he's the one that installed them on lanterns.

I hate those guys. I sold photographs for a while, and inevitably, some ad layout fool would reverse half my images so they led towards the fold--the center of the magazine. Some folks don't realize that we can usually tell a photo has been reversed.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

It's a lot easier to make it slanted than to try and get it straight.

It almost makes sense, but for the decals inevitably being tilted the other way...

Its common that many assume that paper and plastic decals are merely temporary stickers that users would eventually remove. Just like the price, QC checks and other tags. If the attaching process isn't an automated one, you bet that nobody would take the extra trouble to lay them out straight.

I believe they were intended to be permanent.

This was the guy that installed the slanted decals.

Well I don't mean all of them. There are those that were intended to be permanent. Logo decals for example ( those that come without any more permanent features such as stampings, engravings or embossed). Instructions decals such as those yellow ones on milspecs too.
Sometimes there's no clear line between a temporary label or tag and a decal since all of them are pretty much adhesive paper/plastic on the goods. And they're all assembled last just before packaging into boxes. So they're sometimes treated the same way if there're no specific instructions given to factory workers to ensure straightness. If its manually done, I don't see how they could ensure uniformity in an assembly line operating at full blast.
