We all know that Xerox is the industry leader in providing color copiers, high speed scanners, and basically whatever printing solution you might be looking for–whether you are looking to put creative touches on a term paper or actually produce a new weekly paper. It is up to you to be distinctive with what you print, and one of the best ways to do that is by picking the perfect font.
The term “font” comes from ye olden days, when fonts or founts referred to the metal pieces of movable type, in varying sizes, that printers used. In our bright, shiny digital age, of course, size can be scaled automatically, so there is no need for an Arial Narrow 9 font, specifically, any more. Classics like Helvetica, seen on all NYC subway signs, and Futura, choice of the famous Volkswagen ad, are great examples of sans-serif (no projecting flourishes at the end of strokes) and are still everywhere. Times and Arial, the standard for barons of business, and scrappy newcomers Code, Hagin, and Ribbon are dominating the menus at every too-cool coffee joint.
Besides the pack that comes with your computer, there are all kinds of fonts online too, of course, for you to choose from. It is nice to know that whatever typeface you pick, your Xerox printer will be able to handle it.
