Large Print

Using Large Print formats

Many visually impaired people can read print as long as the font size is BIG enough. Large print is also easier to read in many cases than smaller print, so is helpful to people with low literacy levels or for whom English is not their first language.

We re-format text using a minimum of 16pt Arial font in a clear simple layout. Or BIGGER – 20, 24 font - whichever font size suits individual preferences.

Our service includes:

  • Simple black and white transcription
  • Correct font styles, layout and alignment
  • Redesign of graphs, tables, charts and forms
  • Clear, crisp and precise text
  • No 'show through'
  • Use of suitable paper size and weight
  • High quality large print production
