- Minimum Font Sizes recommended to be readable after print:

Printed on white background: minimum of 6 points
Printed on coloured background: minimum of 8 points
Please ensure your text is not too small or unable to read.

- Font type/ family:

In all situations, we can always achieve better print quality if we use the Sans Serif Font.

- Outlined Text (Outlines/Paths/Curves):

This means that we will have a vector artwork and, as such, can no longer be spell checked. However, this will avoid other problems like similar font replacement that can change the artwork completely. Please ensure that your text is outlined before save;
