    Is there some reason why you wouldn't use the avatar we see here as your logo, with your name below or beside it in a solid sans font when needed? I think the avatar is great and would make a terrific...

          Do you have the screen font AND the printer font? If you just have the screen font and flatten a Photoshop file it'll look clearer than Freehand if you do not have the printer font.

          What is the font? Have you tried converted it to outlines?

            As far as I know Freehand only went to version 10 before becoming Freehand MX.

                Is the text in Freehand an image you pulled in from Photoshop? In other words, did you type the text in Photoshop first and bring it into Freehand?

                    You will want to take the text you typed in Freehand, select it and convert it to Paths. Then print it. If you need the live text you will have to get the printer font. There is a version of each font for your viewing onscreen and one that the printer understands so it knows which one to print.

                    Convert to Paths and print and let us know what happens.

                    You are right Reuber, it is MX.

                      Possibly your printer settings, make sure you're not printing as a "draft" or anything like that.

                      Shark, he/she's saying the font has been converted, so I'm thinking that may not be the issue (unless of course it isn't being done correctly).

                          Gotcha, Reuber. I wasn't following that. Sounds like you are on the right track with the printer settings. Sounds fishy to me.

                          If it's been converted to Paths it should print correctly unless, like Reuber says, you have your print setting set up differently.

                              Is the font Fultra or Futura? I can't seem to find Fultra anywhere. I was trying to look it up to see what it looks like. You said you need to print from Freehand so sending a PSD wouldn't help much.

                              Ok, let me ask this... when you say "Not clear when printed out" what do you mean? Is it jagged looking?

                              If you go to www.thecreativeforum.com and sign up you can post pictures in here. That or www.imageshack.us. That way maybe some of us can see what you mean.
