bobbb or Grumpus (I searched but couldn't find it) brought up some super ideas not long ago about pricing and especially the appearance. Since, I've been doing more reading on the subject, but all along I always thought my dollar sign was too large. I did back off on the overall size of the entire price from a larger text size to a smaller one since.
I also came across this excellent source which is summary from other sources, but the guy that put it together did a great job with it.
Here's the comparison. First line is the new look with a smaller dollar sign and the other two with the original dollar sign size.
Looks better eh? Far cry from what I did years ago that looked like this..
