Letter Visibility Distance
Here are Some Tips to Design Visible Signage!
While there are many charts online, we’ve learned they are not always reliable. Signs have a maximum readable distance. Will most consumers be more than 10 or 25 feet away? The rule of thumb that has worked for us? For every three inches, add a hundred feet to your design. One hundred feet being the maximum readability. For every six inches? Max it could be read is from is 200 feet away. Take the letter height and multiply by 30 – it may help you figure out readability distance on your next sign project!
