Artegra Slab Sample Text

This week marks the latest addition to the Artegra superfamily, and we are thrilled to see the arrival of these 54 new slab styles. Artegra Slab sits just right in bold headers and makes for extremely readable paragraph text as well. We especially love the look of the extended width.

Here is a classic example of why font choice and legibility is key in product design. A totebag designer has issued an apology after one of her designs made its way across the Twittersphere, and is now donating 300 percent of her proceeds to the National Holocaust Museum.
