Designer Tip: Best font size for computer displays

The fontsize is the size of the letters on a page. Digitally this is measured in pixels. In applications like Word most people are used to set text in 10 or 12 pixels. This is fine if the document is printed.

Also the resolution on paper is better on screen. That's why it's necissary to use a slightly larger fontsize for screens, starting at 16 pixels.
