  11. 11. Typography: Useful Information – Font Types { Serif } In typography, a serif is the little extra stroke found at the end of main vertical and horizontal strokes of some letterforms. Uses: Serif typefaces have historically been credited with increasing both the readability and reading speed of long passages of text because they help the eye travel across a line. [ Sans Serif ] In typography sans serif is a category of typefaces that do not use serifs, small lines at the ends of characters. Uses: According to most studies, sans serif fonts are more difficult to read. For this reason, they are used most often for short text components such as headlines or captions.
