speed reading- newspaper small

Well as you can see from the font generator above, there are some fonts (like Old English) that are a bit harder to read.

“Serif” fonts are ever so slightly harder to read because they have little “feet” on them.
“Sans Serif” fonts don’t have feet.

Here’s what I’m talking about:

fonts in serif and sans serif

This lack of “Feet” makes “Sans Serif” fonts a bit easier to read, as your brain has to process less visual information.

For most adults reading a book, the difference between Sans Serif and Serif fonts it’s pretty small….however when you take into account that most of the world primarily uses their phones to view the internet, these small details start to matter.

Here’s a demo of how “Sans Serif” fonts are a bit cleaner than “Serif” fonts:

sans serif fonts vs serif fonts

So which is actually the best font to use? My personal favorite I get all my clients to use is:
king of fonts Arial 12 black


All government studies show no statistically significant increase or decrease between Serif and Sans Serif fonts.
 
iPhones and other phones use “Sans Serif” fonts such as Arial for their small label text.
 
When in doubt just use Font: Arial, Size: 12pt, Color: Black.
