  • 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.

          There can be much more to the process that goes beyond the first meeting where you don't always get a budget and a contract on that particular day and you may have to put some money into the process before...

          I am in the real world and this is how I work. I don't proceed without a 50% check in hand. I've never had any trouble getting it. Must be my personal charm and talent
