Fonts are huge?

Can someone take a look at my site and give insight into the size of the font on the theme. It didn't seem large when I was editing it, but now it does. It also looks larger than another brand's site that I know uses the Narrative theme. Any thoughts on how I can make it all look smaller?

Hey, @thistlethread 


I actually think the fonts look quite great on the desktop. However, on mobile your menu navigation seem to be a bit too large.


Since you are likely to see a majority of your traffic on mobile, I would recommend optimizing for that device and consider reducing your header title to something condensed such as just "Thistle & Thread" or "Thistle & Thread Design" instead of "Thistle and Thread Design". Alternatively, adding a logo to show up in that space instead of text would be a great way to add to your brand and save space.


We actually have a free logo making tool called Hatchful that is a terrific way to get a free logo. It's also very easy to use and generates logo concepts for you.


Let me know if this helps!

While checking your store, I find you use css

html {font-size: 16px !important}

And I think its in theme.liquid. I suggest remove it, once you remove it everything will be fine.

may be I'm wrong because Shopify staff already checked your store but please try.


Want to modify or custom changes on store hire me.

Hi @thistlethread,


Yes, the font is needlessly large and is harming your store UX. 

To fix this, you need to edit the page within your theme.

From your Shopify Admin > Online Store > Theme > Edit Code > theme.liquid


Then you can search for this keyword "font", there you can adjust the font size of the whole store.
