There are thousands of different fonts in existence and each one has its own unique flavor. A font can speak volumes about the business, club, or individual it represents. That’s why we take fonts very seriously and choose each one with care. When you come to us with your artwork we often run into the problem that comes with copyrighted fonts. If a font is copyrighted, Illustrator will not preserve that font. This means that we may see a font like the image on the right (see below) when in reality your artwork looks like the image on the left. Want to learn more?
