    Yes all of the fonts look choppy. The “Harol” looks choppy and so does every other text.

    Any solutions?

    Still looking for a solution if anyone could help.

    Oops, I forgot about this discussion. The reason the script appears choppy is because you are using it at small sizes. It’s a display face which are usually not optimized for this use. I also don’t see Arial being used but rather Pontano Sans. Pontano Sans is also a display face and even though the designer states you can use it for text type, it clearly doesn’t render well.

    @chrisburton you’re right. I switched pentano-sans to arial and it’s not choppy at all. I guess ill just have to choose my fonts better. Thanks.

    Maybe you could try these:

    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
    -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
