New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Help! I'm going to go nuts if I need to create another document with TNR. I do some web design, but I'm a definite tyro when it comes to type.
I need a serif font face to replace TNR in legal pleadings filed in federal court. Requirements are: screen (adobe PDF, embedded fonts) and print on standard copy paper using modern monochrome laser printers. We are on Windows using Corel WordPerfect X3 (if that matters). We need to use 13, maybe 14 point. We don't need sans.
What I'm looking for is a font that is conservative yet elegant, if modern not edgy, and very legible. Shouldn't be too antique or call undue attention to itself if you are a judge used to looking at TNR. We use italics a lot for case cites, and they shouldn't be too florid.
What I'm aiming for is something that just gives a slightly fresher, more refined look. Something that you wouldn't immediately notice but somehow are pleased to see. Perhaps the reader wouldn't even register if they're not into such things, but would just feel the document has a fresher look.
Some things I came across during reading and searches: ITC Stone Serif, Adobe Caslon, Minion, Whitman, Augereau, MVB Verdigris, Albertina.
Maybe I'm way off base with these, and can't afford to buy them all to give them a go!
Thanks so much for any suggestions or advice. Let me know if I can provide any other info. Save me from the sameness of TNR!
