Why does the new font on Receipt Templates look less modern?
- Vend for Mac or PC
The font design was changed for a few reasons:
- the font makes different letterforms much more distinct; less confusion between I, l and 1, or the difference between O and 0
- the new font is better suited to the type of printing quality often found in receipt printers; the font is easier to read when printing is poor
- the font is monospace, meaning numbers line up vertically making it more optimal for reading rows of numbers
- all of the above help make the receipt clearer for those with poorer eye-sight
Even though the look is not as modern, we have chosen it to optimize clarity for retailers and customers.
