Type system for Print & Screen
0

Hi,
I'm planning to use "Amplitude" for a branding project.
It looks great on offset print.
But i'm not very sure about how it will look on screen - for the website.
how it will print with screen printing ( for stationary?)
Please enlighten!

How well the typeface works for on-screen use will depend on the size: expect the "ink-trap" elements to pretty much disappear below 16 point or so. And silk-screening for stationery? Not recommended if the stationery will be going through a laser printer...

If you plan on using it on a web site you’ll need to get a special license from Font Bureau. So you might as well contact them and see if they’ve already done studies into screen use of Amplitude or have screen versions for licensing.
