  • 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

          Thanks for all your suggestions Guys.
          Well, I'm not convinced to use Monospaced font (frankly speaking its not my favourite kind ).

          I tried to follow B clues instead. I changed...

          Book cover design - best practice?

          I design books and book covers and it all works well. However I think that personally I have a bad practice that takes far too much time:

          It's been surprising me lately how often cheap trumps quality.
          Like using car wrap vinyl when you should be using photo quality prints...
          Just sayin'...

          The first two entries are WhoIs databases. The third...

          You'd be surprised how surprised some people are that there is a ''service tax'' on design services.
          I would put it in your initial contract and would absolutely NOT wait to discuss on the first...
