Convert text to curves to avoid printing errors

All text must be curved before being printed.

Pass a text to curves to avoid misprints is essential when it comes to delivering any type of project for printing. If we want our project to go well, any type of problems when it comes to printing, we must make sure that all our texts are curved previously.

When taking a graphic project to print, you must have a series of technical factors present if we want to avoid future headaches and achieve a optimal result.

When we take a graphic project to the printing press, it is very common to have some type of easy mistake to avoid, either by a color mismatch, a blurred image or simply by a typographic error. We can avoid many mistakes and the pass text to curves Before sending the file to print, it can be one of them.

A text belongs to a typography determined a font that we can display correctly on our computer but when transferring the file to another PC it fails us because we don't have it installed.

    In design programs there has always been (and is) a submenu that allows you to put together both the images and the fonts used in the document that is sent to be produced. It is not necessary, therefore, to convert them into vectors. Nor if the document is sent conveniently converted into PDF, since both images and fonts are embedded in it. All this, of course, if we talk about professionals.
