Nuts and Bolts: Inside Verse Font Size.

Nuts & Bolts – Inside Verse Font Size


There are many things to consider when deciding what font size to use for your inside verse.  Here are two important considerations that may not have come to mind.

If it’s for an elderly birthday (100 years old) or anniversary (50th wedding anniversary), consider a larger font size to aid with legibility. You can even note this as an added feature in the Artist Notes section like “large font size in inside verse for easy reading”.  CAPS can be a bonus here too.
