Letter Height

To determine an approximate size for your product - or if you are constrained by a specific size - you need to considere letter height.

You want your product to have appropriate visibility for its use. To determine an approximate width, a good rule of thumb is to assume that a letter is as wide as it is high.

Here's a chart that will provide you with some guidance:
