What font size is pleasant to read?
There is a difference between print legibility and digital legibility. Below are some general recommendations we have for legible print text. However, keep in mind that for some fonts, different sizes will apply.
Commonly used fonts for print magazines are:
- general text: font size 9-10
- subtitles: font size 12
- titles or headers: font size 18- 24
Just to be safe, you can print your page first, and check whether the font size you have chosen is legible.
