How much distortion occurs when the type is outlined in Illustrator? I have always been under the impression that when sending files to printer/engraver, it was always best to provide the native files, with images sized in Photoshop, placed in a document layout program, font files and any cure adjustment files necessary.
The question has been floating around our office over some business cards. They want to send out the files with the type outlined in Illustrator. I was taught this is a no no.
