Steps to Creating Font Guidelines

When you create outlines for all your text, we will not have problems on missing fonts or incorrect fonts display.

Embedding Links

Very often, you will place a picture or object in your artwork. These picture or object may not be embedded in the artwork when saving your file. This will cause us to have a missing links. If we failed to detect this “missing links” problem, we will not be liable for it. Please follow this tutorial to learn how to ensure all your links are properly embedded.

Placing your Artwork Correctly
