Sample text

When designing these documents, it’s easy to forget that you are using a color: black. Since black is such a powerful color, balancing it on the page can be a tightrope act: too little emphasis can grey-out the page, too much can blacken it. If you are using only black, your use of type is usually the way you balance the page’s color. Some typefaces are heavier or lighter than others, and most type families are available in varying weights. For example: heavy: Times Extra Bold less heavy: Times Bold lighter: Times Semi Bold lighter still: Times Regular heavy: Univers Black less heavy: Univers Bold lighter: Univers Regular lighter still: Univers Light Choosing the proper combinations of type weights will help to make your document look more inviting.

If you want to insert a note or explanation directly on the graph­ ic, use a serif font if the text is long. Continue to use upper and lower­ case type for increased legibility.
