  • Best font for fine print

    Whats the best font, in your opinion, for fine print? Currently I have it at 5 pt (.063 in) in Arial Narrow. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    Arial narrow is awesome for fine print. Helvetica is just as fine, but it's wider, improving readability at fine print sizes (which you may or may not want, you're not printing a contract so people can sell you their souls, are you, satan?). It's a very common font for forms and such.
    IM me sometime! I promise I won't abbrev. any words under fourteen letters long.

      I can think of several that would work well... just stick to a sans serif and you should be fine.

        From this shot you posted you have totally lost the black knob on top. When retouching products you cannot just use a global answer, but use masking for areas of great contrast.
