    I found statistics for fonts.

    http://www.surl.org/usabilitynews/32/font.asp

    "The results of this study also provide information regarding the aesthetic appeal related to specific font types. For example, the ornate fonts Bradley and Corsiva were perceived as having a great deal of personality and elegance (However, one should be cautious in using these ornate fonts to any great extent because of both their low performance and low popularity among the font types studied). Furthermore, Courier and Times were perceived as being the most business-like, whereas Comic was perceived as being the most fun and youthful."

    what does your business do? that would influence any suggestions.
    o wait I remember, you already said in another thread. you are a constructor but I didn't read far enough to figure out what that is.
    edit: I started going through different fonts for the term "Technical Draftsman" and I must admit I like courier. Not only is it a pretty standard one, I agree with the quote, that it does look professional and it somehow seems suited to describe your kind of work.
