Fonts


From block to cursive, seven font types are available. Fonts range in size from 18 point to 72 point. Deciding on a font type and font size will depend on factors such as the length of text to be imprinted and the location of the imprinting. Try typing your text on a computer in these three sizes (18, 24 & 36 point). Print it out to see which size might fit best in the location you want the text to be imprinted.
