How do I choose the most appropriate font for a professional document?

Asked by: Scott Talbert

You do want your text to be readable. Serif fonts are generally thought to be a little prettier. If the text is small, though, a sans-serif font can be easier to read. Elaborate decorative fonts can be nice for a title, but they get very tedious when used for the main text.

What is the best font to use for professional documents?

Recommended serif fonts include Cambria, Georgia, and Times New Roman. Sans serif fonts don’t have small strokes attached to their letters, giving them a cleaner and more modern style. Some recommended sans serif fonts include Arial, Calibri, and Verdana.
