  • What is your print shop asking for? Is this litho, inkjet…?

  • Technically one need not outline fonts in Illustrator if you send a PDFx file for reproduction. So If you're sending raw AI files.. that's, well, out of the norm.

  • @Scott, it doesn't even have to be a PDFx file. It can have Standard set to None and still have fonts embedded.

  • Possibly @Wolff .. everything which leaves my desk for reproduction is PDFx though. I do know there are shops out there that actually request AI files. I just don't ever have any contact with those shops.

  • @Scott most PDF files we receive and files I make myself don't have a standard defined. Makes no difference for the printed result really. Just easier to check/preflight and Acrobat automatically picks the right Simulation Profile so you don't have to guess. The CMYK values are the same and our RIP doesn't care. But I'm digressing here.
