When sending us working files in Adobe Illustrator (AI) or
Adobe Photoshop (PS)
, it is important to ensure that your fonts are outlined so that there are no missing fonts or wrong fonts in your final printed products.
Do refer to the guide below on how you can outline your fonts.
For Illustrator, select the text that you would like to outline, go to "Type" and then "Create Outlines".
Windows Users: "Ctrl + Shift + O"
Mac Users: "Cmd + Shift + O"
For Photoshop files, right-click the text layer and select "Convert to Shape".
When sending your working files, it is also important to embed your images to ensure that there are no missing images from your artwork.
Rather than linking to a file that you’ve placed in a document, you can embed (or store) the file within the document. When you embed a file, you break the link to the original. Without the link, the Links panel doesn’t alert you when the original has changed, and you cannot update the file automatically.
Keep in mind that embedding a file, rather than linking to the original, increases the document file size.
- Select a file in the Links panel, and choose Embed Image from the panel menu.
- Select the linked artwork in the illustration window. In the Control panel, click the Embed button.
