I am a web designer and developer and I recently had a client ask me to do print design. I have never done print before so I downloaded a guide from the printers for preparing documents for print, however there is one thing that confuses me. It says use the real fonts wherever possible and avoid using the bold and italic buttons.
Does this apply to photoshop and faux styles? I am using the bold and italic options if available in the character menu as I have done for web for many years.
I was worried that this wasn't the correct way so I looked for the real fonts. I have great difficulty downloading the bold and italic versions of certain fonts as they cost a lot of money and when I did find one (century gothic) I went to paste the font into the windows fonts folder and it said that century gothic is already installed. I did a search and I could only see the regular font in this folder. Does this mean that the bold and italic versions are somehow bundled together ?
I am confused
