New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have an art project where I want to print a whole bunch of tiny text onto paper.
The idea is to give out magnifying glasses to patrons so that people can read the tiny text. I want the text to be as small as possible, but still legible using a visual aid like a magnifying glass. It is fine to have the text not legible without a magnifying glass though.
I suspect that a printer's DPI would be important in figuring out the smallest size since you need to fill a character's stroke with sufficient number of dots (ie. ink). For sake of discussion, let's assume the printer is a commercial printer who mass prints books.
How small in pts can I print the text?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
