Why did you change the font of new Receipt Templates?

Question

Why does the new font on Receipt Templates look less modern?

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC 

Answer

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.
