Letterhead Fonts are now available only in Postscript-flavored Open Type. This means that your software must support Open Type fonts. Open Type fonts work great in:
• Most Microsoft applications
• SignLab 7.1 or newer
• FlexiSign 7 or newer
• CorelDraw 9 or newer
• Illustrator 9 or newer
• Photoshop 5.5 or newer
• InDesign 1.0 or newer
• Quark 4 or newer
• Freehand 10 or newer
• Gerber Omega 2.51 or newer
If you are in doubt as to whether or not your programs can use Open Type, we suggest downloading the free trial version of our LHF Quadrex font before ordering.
The decision to offer Open Type exclusively was multi-faceted, but one of the main reasons was that we were disappointed with the inferior quality of True Type and the way it mangled our drawings.
Postscript Open Type is true to how we originally drew the letters. While True Type actually moves points around, thereby changing the shape of the letters.
This means that some people will need to upgrade their software in order to use Letterhead Fonts. But if the Open Type format is superior, why would you not do so (assuming you have the means to)? We want to use the best tools to produce the best possible product for the customer.
