  • 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.

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

          I wouldn't show sketches. You're demonstrating your propensity to give away your work for free, without any sort of contract or agreement to terms. It's a bad precedent and it makes it more likely in...

          It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....
