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

    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.

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