Outlining Fonts in Illustrator for T-Shirt Printing

Our art department has a vast array of fonts but we don’t have every font in the limitless world of typography. To avoid missing font problems, we recommend converting all fonts to outlines in your vector and pdf documents before uploading them. Converting a font to outlines can be completed by following these steps:

1. First open your vector document in Illustrator and unlock all of the layers to have access to all fonts within the document. (diagram 1)
