Business Card Font Size


#1
Hey all,

I would be interested to know what the most common font size is used on business cards I use 8pt, mostly. I'm curious to see if there is a standard for most.

Thanks

:D

Depends on the font as well, not all fonts are created equally... especially some of those free ones.

Most designers will use between 9pt and 12pt - it can be tempting to go bigger but there's no need usually.

Thanks everyone. That's really helpful :)

I've been look at some BC designs online and some of the text seems really small.

Thanks for your input.

Depends on font of course and all a matter of personal preference but I'd say you're bang on with 8pt for text details - anything much bigger can look clumsy.

Yes - I wouldn't go much smaller than 8pt, but I've seen templates for BC's with fonts as small as 6pt. Barely legible once printed I'm sure.
