WHY DO I NEED TO CREATE OUTLINE FOR ALL THE FONTS BEFORE SENDING THE ARTWORK FOR PRINTING?

There are basically two reasons that creating an outline for your fonts is extremely important, for which this essentially means converting any fonts in your artwork to “shapes”.

Written below are some ways to make sure your business gave the impact you aimed for, not just to be stored forever in the wallet or throwing away in bins.

1. The printer will not have all the fonts in the world readily installed on their computer. More so when most of the fonts come with legal licenses that prohibit them to be uploaded or shared. Therefore, if the artwork is not outlined and the fonts used are not available in the printer’s computer, the fonts will automatically be replaced by the default fonts of the computer.

2. An outlined artwork literally converts all fonts in the artwork to shapes. By doing so, this will eliminate any remote chances of the printer accidentally edit the artwork contents by mistake.
