What are the best fonts for flyer readability?

At Print Harbour, we recognise that the choice of font is crucial in ensuring the effectiveness of your flyers. The right font not only conveys your message but also enhances readability, making sure your audience engages with the content. Here are some top font choices for flyer readability: 

Serif Fonts: Timeless and Legible

Serif fonts, known for their decorative strokes at the ends of letters, are a classic choice for flyers. Fonts like Times New Roman and Garamond offer excellent readability, especially in printed form, making them ideal for detailed and text-heavy flyers.

Sans-Serif Fonts: Modern and Clear

For a more contemporary look, sans-serif fonts are a fantastic option. Fonts such as Arial, Helvetica, and Calibri are celebrated for their clean lines and uncluttered appearance, which aids in readability, particularly for headlines and call-to-action statements.

Script and Handwritten Fonts: Personal and Stylish

While script and handwritten fonts should be used sparingly, they can add a personal touch to your flyer. Fonts like Brush Script or Lucida Handwriting are great for highlights or headings but remember to pair them with more legible fonts for the main text.

Consider Font Size and Spacing

Beyond the font style, the size and spacing of your text are paramount. Ensure your font size is not too small, and make use of line spacing to prevent cluttering, especially in dense paragraphs.

Contrast and Colour

The colour of your font against the background can significantly impact readability. Opt for high contrast combinations, like black on white, to ensure your text stands out and is easy to read.
