Fonts and the Law
Fonts are just like any other piece of software in that when you purchase the font you are granted a license to use that font/software in a certain way.
With very few exceptions, font licenses ONLY allow you to use that font on ONE machine and print to a printer attached to that machine. It is ILLEGAL to give that font to anyone else even if they are printing out YOUR job.
In practical terms this means that when you send any application file (InDesign, Illustrator, PageMaker, CorelDraw etc) to us for printing etc, you are NOT allowed to also send us the font files. (However, it is legal to embed fonts into Acrobat PDF files or EPS files).
Therefore to enable us to process your file you must do one of the following -
Convert all the fonts in the job to curves or outlines. While Illustrator and CorelDraw allow you to do this easily, the page layout programs do not.
Only use fonts that we have licenses for in your job (Contact us for a full list/sample of our complete range of more than 3000 fonts). Complete lists of all our POSTSCRIPT and TRUETYPE fonts names are available here.
Convert your job to an Acrobat PDF file using our joboption file(s)
Convert your job to an EPS file making sure that the fonts are included as curves or outlines
Finally we must emphasise that we can not accept and use any font files you supply us. We appreciate that this may at times inconvenience you (and we know we lose work to illegal operators because of our stance), but unless/until the law is changed we have no other option.
