    what are the age of your target audience? I usually use between 8-12pt for booklets..
    depends on how much is the content i guess..

    It also depends on the Font you choose, different fonts looks different on the same size. for education u can use bigger point sizes.

    only way to find out - print out few pages with different font sizes & see for your self what's easiest to read ;)
    (some fonts are still huge at 9pt while others are tiny and hard to read)

    8 is the smallest readable size,
    while 12 is the largest legible correct size when it comes to text.

    My recommendation is something neutral 10 seems excellent.

    I am using Univers font in sizes 12 and 11. This works best for the booklet.

    thanks again.
