Just a silly poll... but I was wondering how many of us have actually choosen a font or set of fonts for all our business correspondence?

We use Trajan Pro Regular for titles and we use BibleScrT Regular for some text and finally Arial for anything else. It's a standard we set when we made our new Logo and slowly we are redoing everything to use these fonts.

Anyone else doing this? What fonts have you chosen?

Trajan Pro above, BibleScrT below

Do you mean just printed correspondence, or are you including online communication as well?

Isn't there some deal about the fonts on YOUR computer not necessarily being on other computers, so the other computers try to pick a close match, sometimes missing badly and using something hard to read like Old English?

I know on websites I always stick with "websafe" fonts listed at http://goo.gl/ystn

Printed correspondence, logos. Not websites.

In modern browsers you can upload a web font to your server and everyone (with a modern browser) can see it. Of couse you'll also want to specify standard backup font for those with older browsers.

You can convert any font to a web font here: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator

Or google also has several fonts already hosted, you just have to call them: http://www.google.com/webfonts

I use Times New Roman and Courier New and Arial - all are easy to read and that is the most important requirement.

We use Arial as it matches our headed paper plus its easy to read.
