Visiting Card Address Font
Let us go into the deep of using
fonts for visiting cards. we have already mentioned in the previous
articles that fonts would reflect the subject and the mood of the
card. We must know what type of fonts should be avoided as far as
possible. And if you want to use it then you need to process it
by working with font style, size and track.
Address is the tricky part of the
visiting card. Most of the times, it occupies the major portion
of the card while it is one of the most important part. You do not
have much scope to decorate it as it contains lot of text than any
other area. Mostly people prefer to be formal while working with
address font. This is an attitude to have minimum risk and not to
play with the delicate part of the card.
Taking everything into consideration, we need to carefully
choose the font for address. It must be easily readable and should
be harmonious with the rest of the design and the fonts.
What and why can not be used?
You certainly can not use the tight fonts like script for address
which may be difficult to read. You also can't use decorative fonts
that may not be again readable when decreased to smaller size. Thick
fonts are also not a good choice for address as they occupy more
space than normal one besides may become problem to read if reduced
to smaller size. We have given some examples of the font types that
may not be the good choice for address.
Address using script font
Address using decorative font
Address using thick font
The example shows that the address goes beyond the
border as the type occupies more space.
Here we have another type of thick font that occupies
less space as compare to previous one but may be a bit difficult
So what's the option?
The best option is to play simple. Better not to play with the text
block that contains contact information.
Simple regular font like Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana
etc. with loose track is the best choice for address. You can try
bold, italics etc. according to your choice if it allows to accommodate
within the available space.
