Type – screen vs print

Type appears differently between screen & print.

To really understand the difference, we will typeset 3 sentences
using different point sizes & leading. Then you will print your page to see how type appears on paper vs. the screen.

  1. Indesign>Page setup>8.5×11
  2. Type 3 sentences.
  3. Version 1- type is: 10/12
  4. Copy same sentences and set them according to measurements below:
  • 10/12; 10/14; 10/16
  • 12/12; 12/14, 12/16
  • 14/12; 14/16; 14/18

Print your page and compare printout to your file on the screen.
