The fonts used are generally embedded during the PDF export so that they do not create any problems when printing. However, in some cases this is not possible. The texts must then be converted to paths. For certain productions, a conversion to paths is a basic requirement for printing and stitching textiles, for example. For example, if you would like to create t-shirts, jackets or hats with your logo on, the corresponding print data is required. This also applies to other textile products, such as shopping bags or lanyards.
If a text is vectorised, it can be treated like a vector graphic and therefore moved and scaled without any loss in quality. However, content changes are no longer possible. For a professional result, it is recommended that you use sans-serif fonts. If the lines are too fine, it is very likely that you may not be able to establish exact paths, which will ultimately affect the results.
In order to convert your text characters to paths, you will need the appropriate software. In our tutorial, we show you how to proceed in Adobe Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Photoshop CC and Scribus 1.4.5.
With vectorised text characters, there is nothing more to stand in the way of your individual textile products.
