Invitation Meltdown....I think I'm going to cry....
Posted 01 March 2009 - 05:38 PM
So, after many painstaking hours I've created a masterpiece of a boarding pass invitation. I ordered the PERFECT paper from cutcardstock.com (which wasn't that cheap) and planned all along to have them professionally printed.
The problem lies in the fact that I used a MAC laptop to create them, and used a couple MAC fonts as well as some free fonts from dafont.com. So now, when I send the saved files to other computers to test print they don't recognize the fonts and it doesn't print right.
I planned on using staples and they said they won't be able to print them because I've used MAC fonts and other fonts.
I did save them as PDF's, but it kinds shrinks them and the proportions don't work out the same.
I'm so upset because I spent hours on them and love them EXACTLY how they are. It's throwing salt in my wounds since I had my STD's printed with my weddingannouncer website before it crashed and didn't have the technical issues resolved having to put stickers with a new site over top.
I feel like I'm going to lose it, but don't want to have wasted my valuable time and money that I've spent to find the perfect paper!

If you have a printer, try printing them yourself and see - worst thing is you waste a piece of card stock (just use a cheap piece of cardstock before using the good stuff to print). Then you can bring it it to get it cut professionally if you want. Good luck !!

or to avoid all of that, convert the fonts to outlines in adobe illustrator. don't have a melt down. it's not a huge deal.
