Nuts and Bolts: Inside Verse Considerations

July 21, 2017

Nuts & Bolts – Inside Verse Considerations


Creating a fitting verse that captures the sentiment of your design and the occasion is hard enough but it doesn’t end there. The font style, size, color, and alignment (vertical and horizontal) are all important considerations that are within your control.


Choose the best match to the font, design, color, style, mood and occasion of the cover design. It is also important to keep in mind the gender and age of the card recipient.


Here is an article on the Submission Guideline – Typography: Font Choice that has some good tips for choosing a font style for a cover design many of which apply to inside verses too.


TIP: LEGIBILITY – Some fonts do odd things – odd kerning or characters ,like apostrophes, that you cannot control and may not be ideal to use for an inside verse. Be sure to look at each character in your inside verse and change the font style if needed.


The difference is made in the details!
