Proper Font Usage:
CW Print + Design has access to over 10,000 fonts in our database. However, we do not have every font, so we highly recommend sending your files as print-ready pdfs. If you are designing in Illustrator or Indesign, we highly recommend that you convert all text to outlines before exporting your pdf. If you are using Photoshop, we recommend flattening all of your layers before exporting as a pdf. If you are using Microsoft Office or Publisher, we highly recommend that you send your file as a pdf. If you are using a particular font, you can also send us your font files with your project . Please note that some fonts have different permissions for embedding into a pdf, so be sure to check your pdf file closely before sending.
