Printed Font Tips
Now that you have a good idea of the font you’ll be using, how can you make it work for you? Picking a good font for your custom design is only the beginning. Below are some tips to make your fonts work for you:
Make it Match
With design, less is always more. Stick to one font family so your work doesn’t look chaotic and unfocused. One or two different fonts are enough for a project.
Margin and text. Those are two keywords you need to keep in mind when thinking about sizing on your custom tote bag. More text means more margin, plenty of white space allows for easier reading.
Pick fonts that are bold and can stand out despite any color your background could be. Keep in mind that the greater the contrast between the text and the background, the clearer your font looks.
