Best Tiny Font for Web Graphics

I finally found the perfect font for making really small, yet readable text in web graphics.  I've played around with plenty of fonts and usually arrive at a reasonable result.  In the past I would use Eurostyle with enough spacing to make it legible.  Now, I have a new go-to font for small typeface.  Introducing Silkscreen.

Usage Notes (for Photoshop CS2):

  • It fails to render clean with pretty much any point size lower than 8
  • If the font looks blurry, turn off anti-aliasing
  • You can have a -75 kerning and the font will look better than every (in fact kerning only really seems to apply to in-between words, not letters)
  • Download the font here

Cheers,
