    Sharing typekit fonts with printer

    MrMcQuillen Level 1

      I've been trying to find an answer to this question, and haven't found anything concrete...


      Now that Typekit has become a mainstay, it brings up the issue that as designers we are unable to package fonts with jobs as we used to. Before Typekit locked fonts down, we could package fonts and send them along with a file to a printer, so if the printer (for whatever reason) ever had to open a native file etc. they would have the fonts. According to the language in Adobe products:


      "For font software licensed from Adobe, your license agreement provides that you may take a copy of the font(s) you have used for a particular file to a commercial printer or other service provider, and the provider may use the font(s) to process your file..."


      So, my question is - if we are unable to package fonts from Typekit, how are we supposed to "bring" the fonts to our printer? Is there anything in the works to allow the sharing of fonts from Typekit, within the limits of the license agreement of course, but seems like there is no way to do this. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
