    Do you loose any quality or perfectness when turning your fonts to outlines for a printer/press?

    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.
