Clean, Simple Fonts

As tempting as it may be to use WordArt or silly fonts, it’s better to stick to a simple typeface. Specifically, using a sans serif font is best. A sans serif font is one that does not have any small lines or squiggles on the points of the letter.

Sans serif fonts are cleaner and easier to read, especially on a computer or projector screen.

Sans Serif Fonts:
Arial
Calibri
Tahoma
Trebuchet MS
Verdana
Serif Fonts:
Times New Roman
Georgia
Droid Serif
Courier New

 

Remember to limit how often you type in CAPS. It comes across to many as if you are “yelling” and may be difficult to read. Using standard capitalization rules is best.
