1) It depend on the font that you are using. Font such as Time New Roman are more close to each other while Courier New are more space out. Print on to a colour Inkjet in draft mode to see the effect.

:light: Please leave another min 1mm border otherwise your broder will be cropped off regardless are you using "Fit-In" mode.
I have just collected my print on Christmas eve, almost all with border are been cropped off unporportionally. The developer advise min to leave 1mm, currently in the midst of adjusting then send for reprinting.

2) If you are using PS, run Adobe Gamma in the control panel to calibrate the monitor. The photo develop out will be very near to the monitor colour.

What I can suggest is to temporarily resize the onscreen image to be as big as a 4R photo placed on screen. Then you can get a rough idea of how your fonts would look like on paper.
