Website design require different fonts, this is because it is harder to read type on screen than in other circumstances. There are a range of web-safe fonts which are typically used for website designs to ensure easy legibility as some people will just skim over your website, or simply have trouble reading digital print. This will mean that the lilihood of their interaction with your site will be hugely decreased.

Create A Professional, Readble eCommerce Solution

When designing e-commerce solutions it is essential to produce a professional website design outcome that will keep attract customers and keep them coming back. If the wrong typeface is used then this could change the outlook of your site to being hard to read and therefore awkward for the consumer to continue. Possibly losing their business to a competitor.

The use of fonts that are widely available on most operating systems will allow your website to be readable on most computers. Serif fonts such as Times New Roman and Georgia are hard to read on a computer, but are of course perfectly suitable for a Print, where as Sans serif fonts, such as Verdana, Tahoma and Helvetica are ideal for a website design. A larger type size for the headings and a body copy of around 10 or 12 point.

"Fancy Fonts" For Website Use

Fancy fonts can be used for headings but as they will not be seen on everyone's computer or operating system it is best to use these headings within images, this is good for catching the eye of potentional customers. There is downsides to this though, search engines read text and cannot read images so these images will not be picked up. So using web safe fonts instead can improve search engine optimisation.
