DVD case text size?

Hi there. Just starting out in trying to make some custom covers, and have been wondering what is the basic font size for the back of the DVD cases? The part of the case that has a paragraph or two for the plot.

Also, are there any hints at all at any settings I should check or uncheck when doing the text? I am using Paint Shop Pro X if that helps.

Thanks for any advice.

There is no set font or size for synopsis paragraphs. Take a look at some DVD's and you'll see how much they vary from one to the next. As for tips, make sure you have the anti-aliasing turned on (otherwise your text will look vary jaggedy).
