    Newbie Font Question

    ticmike

      Hi.

         Im quite new to Illustrator and im using CS4.

      My problem is that im doing a logo redraw for a company and ive managed to track down the fonts they have used, but when i save the artwork and email it to my client, the font does not show up, its shows a different font, i ticked the embed font in the save menu.

       

      Am i doing something wrong here??

          They simply do not have the fonts installed on their machine.Even though you embedded the fonts they would still need the fonts there is ctually no way to embed fonts in the way you expect them to be embedded.

           

          They will have to obtain the fonts and install them properly.

           

          It is probably two or three at the most so they should have them avaiable for their use anyway.

            If you want the deliverable to contain live text, Wade's right, the client will have to acquire the font. However, you say it's a "logo redraw," and...pretty much as a rule...a logo graphic should not contain live font information. Convert to outlines, even when exchanging working proofs; convert a copy to outlines before sending.
