Remember to space the numbers and the decimal separator closely.

Set the cursor between the full stop and the line and pull the same with -130.

Placement of PIF, Price and Promotion Text

Whenever possible, consistency in the layout should be prioritized across the spread.

Currency descriptions

Countries that use currency designations in the form of letters after the price. The currency designation is positioned to the right over the dash if it is whole numbers. The currency designation has to be aligned with the upper edge of the price. If there are decimals, the currency designation is right-aligned under the decimals and aligned with the lower edge of the price. (OBS: with the exception of Romania).

PIF (Price Info Front) and Prices

As a rule, the PIF (Price info front) is black, but if it becomes unclear, the PIF is made negative or with a white transparent box behind it. The price always remains white with a black stroke. The font sizes described below are fixed regardless of the length of the words. See Alignment of PIF further down on this page for guidelines regarding the alignment of price and PIF.

Exception - PIF in 150%

We increase the PIF to 150% when it says that we are selling more than one article.

Alignment of PIF

A PIF with a short text must be aligned with the left edge of the price. A PIF with a long text must be split in two lines and be aligned with the left edge of the price.
However, we may not split the words. Therefore, if the words in the PIF are wider than the price, the text must be aligned with the right edge of the price.
This is to make sure the price will keep it’s position.
