Visible Font

At the start of every conversation with our customers, we ask the big question, “How much information are you marking and how Big does it have to be?”

The answer leads to the next question, is the Font size a spec or just for visibility? What they don’t know is that our high quality MarkinBOX and Patmark Pin Marking Equipment has the capability of marking and being readable at 0.5mm tall characters.

Testing Font Sizes for Visibility

We love testing our equipment to see how far we can push the limits. After stamping a range of sizes, 0.5mm up to 3.0mm, were the marks readable? See below.

The smallest size, 0.5mm is a little difficult to read from a distance, but as you move toward 0.8mm and up they become increasingly readable.

Then we magnified the marks and looked at the quality of our Pin Marking equipment.

Now, you can clearly see the 0.5mm mark! Though it may be rare to engrave 0.5mm tall characters, but attention to quality is unique for our equipment.

If you want a font size that is visible to the naked eye, we recommend 0.8mm or higher.

If you have any questions about font sizes, please contact us.

As always, thank you for supporting us and our marking equipment.
