Should I outline fonts in a PDF, when exporting from Illustrator, before sending to the printer?

Jimmy Papas requested your answer Should I outline fonts in a PDF (exported from Illustrator) before sending to the printer? First consult with the project printer. Each print project is going to have it own quirks and requirement. From business cards of multiple names and titles to monthly publications, annual publications or brochures. Whether graphic design projects are offset printed, screen printed, letterpress or reproduced on a digital press. What ever the printing method or methods employed or the printed piece’s folding and finishing needs, a conversation at project beginning with the selected commercial printer is the graphic designers responsibility. So too is the quality of the graphic art files passed off for reproduction. Talk to the printer discuss the projects graphic arts files needs. Get a physical print proof, this should be part of the project budget also.

Export PDF: All You Need to Know

If printing multiple files at once, such as a layout, it is also important to be diligent in making sure that all fonts are supported. What can you do instead, in case you don’t have all Font Previews? The vendor offers fonts that work nicely in Illustrator, and has a website that lists a number of vendors who support certain fonts. Some are free and some are Premium, but you get the idea. So, now we know: Use a tool that supports a certain font. The first step is recognizing and addressing any fonts that may be working behind the scenes. Once you have the font you have determined to be supported, you should also add Font Preview to it. If I were to say, “What should I NOT do with Illustrator?” The following items could be the problem. You could already be using the wrong font. Look for.
