How To Determine Font Set Size

To estimate, multiply the total linear feet of changeable letter space in the sign, (double faced signs double the linear feet), by the multiplier number listed below.

Length of row (length of sign) x number of rows x numbers of faces x multiplier=Approximate Font Size (round up/down as necessary.)

A minimum 250 font should be ordered for a four line two sided 4' x 8' copy board to be effective.
