Terry, If you are willing to change all the text in your plot, the easy solution is... Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 2}, TextStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 14}]; Otherwise, you can define your own tick functions. Here I also make the y ticks red. xticks = Table[{x, StyleForm[x, FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 14]}, {x, 0, 2, 0.5}]; yticks = Table[{y, StyleForm[y, FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 14, FontColor -> RGBColor[1, 0, 0]]}, {y, 0, 4, 1}]; Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 2}, Ticks -> {xticks, yticks}]; The problem with the above is that it eliminates the minor ticks and it is a bunch of work to add them back in. If you use DrawGraphics you can use the CustomTick function, which gives the minor ticks and allows the labels to be specified with the CTNumberFunction option. Needs["DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`"] Draw2D[ {Draw[x^2, {x, 0, 2}]}, Axes -> True, Ticks -> {CustomTicks[Identity, {0, 2, 0.5, 5}, CTNumberFunction -> (StyleForm[#, FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 14] &)], CustomTicks[Identity, {0, 4, 1, 5}, CTNumberFunction -> (StyleForm[#, FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 14, FontColor -> Red] &)]}, ImageSize -> 350]; If you are using a Frame, then you should use FrameTicks instead of Ticks.

Any simple example will do. I don't need to produce any new tick marks than what the default gives, I just want them to appear more visible. Thanks in advance!! ....Terry
