- Avoid having to find and send fonts to your printer with Illustrator files.
- For printers to use Illustrator files that contain type made with fonts they either need the actual font file or the fonts need to be outlined.
- First open the file that you need to outline the fonts in, select the type that needs to be outlined.
- Then go to the font menu, and select the "outline fonts" option.
- Then save your file.
- Now you don't have to hunt down the fonts to send to your printer.
