How and why should I be converting text to outlines?

Every computer has a different set of fonts installed on it, so you should never assume that the client has the particular font you use, available to them. It is often illegal to deliver font files with your logo, so it is important that you convert all your text to paths, curves or outlines. This step will convert all fonts into a vector shape, and will not allow you to edit the text any further.

In Adobe Illustrator:

>select the text you want to outline

>go to Type

> create Outlines.
