hello,

my print team are asking me to rotate my ai manuscript,which is usually done before printing which then prevents the printer from deformation due to lack of fonts when opening manuscript.basically when we send them our ai files the design effect displayed is inconsistant with theres.shes calling it a rotating operation,any ideas please.

Ben,

 

The fonts get embedded in the PDF, and it is scalable, but it cannot be changed to fit different box proportions.

 

With an AI document whoever opens it needs to have the same fonts as you have used (including the manufacturer unles they get a PDF made in the further process), or else exactly this is what happens: "lack of fonts when opening manuscript", in other words font substitution.

 

Rotation has nothing to do with deformation/lack of fonts.

 

So there is something strange in the statements.

 

I believe a clarification from your print team is needed.

Ben,

 

Why not just Save a Copy in the form of a PDF for printing?

Hi jacob,
Thanks for reply ,thats what I wanted to do but the company want the
document in ai format, its for a box design so think they might want to
adjust to fit whatever box manufacturer they decide to use as the boxes
vary slightly,im new to ai but thought a pdf was scalable anyways,was a
little unsure what she meant to be honest .
