#5 Line Text Minimum Size
Last Updated: 10/17/2019
Please remember that words can be very challenging to read when imprinted in wax. The larger the font and the larger the die, the better the outcome will be.
On smaller dies our recommended Text Size for legibility in wax (not graphic art) is 4mm at the die’s actual size.
On 35mm and 45mm die sizes we can typically work with 2mm-3mm text sizes but this depends entirely on the font type.

The Font Type is also important for the readability of your text- Tip: Block fonts are easier to read than script fonts. Also, capital letters are easier to read than lowercase letters.
