For all you veteran rod builders out there.

What would be a good size font for lettering to put on my new cat rod I built.

Rod diameter is 0.582 inches.

Thank you

Whatever size fits, while still being large enough to read. If you have a printer, why not knock out some samples in the font (typeface) you desire and see what looks good to you. You can do this on plain paper and once you have it dialed in you can make your own or supply the info to whoever is making the decals for you.
