Hi, my printer has asked that I send over the artwork in eps format, with fonts 'turned to outline';  is this a technical term, or do I just give the font a thin outline?

Hi Jane,

I think all they wont is for you to remove the fill from the fonts and just leave the stroke colour like my attachment.

I think the print shop may actually want the text glyphs turned into vectors – converted to filled shapes, not given outlines – rather than the fonts being embedded in the PDF.

Export using menu “File → Export...” then press the More button and select “Text as Curves” from the Embed Fonts drop-down.
When you open the PDF in Acrobat Reader you should see that you cannot select the text and the list of fonts (via Properties) should be empty.
