What If My File Is Missing Fonts?

Preparing Artwork > General Questions

If a file is missing fonts and if they are not common fonts then based on which application it was created in, the end result maybe different. Most Adobe Application like Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign will complain about missing fonts. But most Microsoft Application like Word, Excel, Power Point will never complain and will auto substitute the font, and we will never know about it, till it gets printed and you receive it on your side and compare with what you see on the screen. So it is very important that you follow the following guidelines:

  • Save the artwork as PDF (PDF/X-1a standard)
  • Outline your font. Please research your application on how to perform this step.
