Man there is so much to learn....after you thought you already knew all there was to know! How humbling this website is!
That is me grovling to you guys- how have you learned all of this!!!! Anyways, here is my question.
Does the font file format truly matter in printing nowadays? Here is a convoluted example, if you see anywhere there could be a problem please tell me.
Let's say I am creating something like a flyer using any typical font found on my computer. I test it on my Canon pixma ink jet printer, then I take it to work and test it on their HP Laser printer. After these two tests I then take the project- which I assume is in fine printing order to a print shop like Kinkos. Then to a professional printer where they will run 5,000 copies.
Do you think there would be any printing difficulties during any of these steps? If I use a certain font file, could I expect a problem anywere?
I here of projects getting canned at the printers because of an issue. I am trying to learn whatever I need to know before this would happen. Confusing??? I agree! HELP!
