  • outlined fonts

    Do you loose any quality or perfectness when turning your fonts to outlines for a printer/press?
    Wouldn't it mess up small body copy a little?
    Isn't it better to send PDF or orig. file with fonts instead of orig. outlined?

    Outlining your fonts will make them slightly thicker/bolder - it doesn't make any difference if the type is bigger, but on smaller body copy you may notice a change.

    Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.
    Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

      That's sort of what I thought. So 540pt. type will increase in size the same amount as 7pt. ?

        The more text you have to outline the larger the file will be too. Can make emailing difficult.

        PD is a grande format digital print dude. His advice/opinions may not apply to the 4color/offset/web world of printing

          Thank you for answering my questions. The project that I'm working on is about how math is used in almost every profession, so each student has to pick a job and then research how math is used in that...

          In my area of the country, there are an abundance of this.

          I wouldn't say it means nothing. If it's coupled with all the other things, like internships, actual employment and education, it definitely counts for something.

          When I interview people...
