Since Microsoft Office and the online writing platforms, as well as design apps such as Photoshop, are allowing us to play around with fonts, we started taking advantage of it, just to spice things up, but sometimes we make a crutial mistake: we type and/or print documents with a fond that we later need to translate to people because of the very hard font to read. Just to make sure you don’t make the same mistake twice, we are going to talk today about 7 easiest fonts to read on screen and paper and when they should be used.
Typing down flyers, documents etc is one of the best things that our computing devices are allowing us to do. Before that, we only had typing machines where people needed to type each document individually and the letters were very ugly. Before that, we even had a worse situation. Each document, each flyer, each paper, in general, had to be hand-written. This wasn’t practical because it took away much time and, if you had one word written wrong, you would have to throw away that paper and start all over. Pretty exhausting, don’t you think?
Now, with movable printers and Word Documents, as well as apps such as Photoshop, we can type everything down only once and leave the options to do everything else like printing more than a thousand copies of the same document with only one click.
When it comes to official documents, they are usually done in one font that is very easy to read for everyone and that’s all. But private documents are tricky. When you need to type something on your personal computer, there is always a struggle which font to use. Almost everyone has a normal thinking and avoid using any type of italic font unless they are working on flyers for some party. But which one to use in general? Times New Roman, Ariel? Maybe even Calibri? It I a lot easier when you have instructions. When I went to college, my teachers always gave clear instructions and usually it was Times New Roman, size 14. Since then, for every document I type for printing, I use this font. I didn’t have any issues so far, maybe because offices in my place are using either the same font or it is easier for them just to be able to read it. The whole point of printing is for all people to be able to recognize all the letters, so next time you have something to type, these are 7 easiest fonts to read on screen and paper to use.
