What font size is best for my project?
The optimal text size varies depending on what background is being used.
We suggest you use stronger fonts such as Arial, Verdana or Tahoma as opposed to serifed fonts (fonts with small tails contained on the end of characters) so they don't fade into coloured or transparent backgrounds. It is best to only use serifed fonts at larger sizes (14 point or above, preferably with bold) when working with coloured or transparent backgrounds.
Please note that font sizes vary depending on the font type. For example Arial 12 point will be a different size to Times New Roman 12 point. If you're concerned about how big your font will print, you can paste text of the same font and size into a word processor and print it out to see how it will appear.
