Fonts are?
A font is a set of characters in a particular typeface. Examples include Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier. Fonts are sold by different manufacturers.

Microsoft Windows Fonts
TrueType Fonts, as adopted by Microsoft, contain both screen and printer data in one file, sometimes causes inconsistent results, and/or unexpected problems during imaging. When used for commercial printing, their results are less reliable.

Adobe Fonts
Adobe Type 1 Fonts are currently the most reliable for professional printing. They consist of Screen Fonts, used to represent type on screen; and Printer Fonts, used to represent type off a laser printer or image setter. For a relatively small investment (as low as $50), you can purchase Adobe Type 1 Fonts for use on either a Macintosh or IBM compatible PC. To achieve a far superior looking book, with reliable results, Crane strongly recommend that you do just that. For additional information on Adobe Type 1 Fonts, visit their web site at www.adobe.com/type.
Note: Customers using Adobe Type 1 Fonts must send us both screen and printer fonts for each typeface that they use, including those found in graphics. Missing fonts often cause imaging problems, such as the re flow of pages. Remember to include a separate font for every style (bold, italic, etc.) of font used.

How to Reduce Font Problems
To bold a Times New Roman font, choose the "Times New Roman Bold" font, rather than the "bold" attribute from a toolbar. Stylized fonts may default to the normal font, disregarding the style attribute. This applies to all style attributes such as italics, strong, bold, small, large, just to name a few.

Sending Crane IBM PC Fonts
TRANSFERRING FONTS ON PC: Windows 95/98 usually stores its fonts on the local hard drive of the computer, which is usually Drive C. If the fonts are True Type fonts, they are usually in the Drive C - Windows - Fonts folder. Open this folder and copy all the fonts to a zip disk or CD. If the fonts are Type 1 fonts, they are usually in the Drive C-psfonts folder. Open this folder and copy all the fonts to a zip disk or CD. There should also be a folder called pfm inside the psfonts folder. Open this folder and copy all the fonts to a zip disk or CD. DO NOT stuff, ZIP, or compact font files.

Sending Crane MAC Fonts
TRANSFERRING FONTS ON MAC: Mac OS usually stores its fonts in the 'System' folder in the 'Fonts' folder on the Mac hard drive. Open this folder and copy all the fonts to a zip disk or CD. If the fonts are Type 1 fonts, please include both the screen fonts (usually stored in suitcases) and the matching postscript printer fonts. True Type fonts have the printer font embedded, and do not have a separate postscript font. DO NOT stuff, ZIP, or compact font files.
