Embedding Fonts in Your Graphics File

Ensure all parts of your graphic can be viewed when opened on another computer.

As you prepare your graphics, select fonts from the following recommended list:

  • Helvetica
  • Times New Roman
  • Arial
  • Cambria
  • Symbol

If you are supplying EPS, PS, or PDF files, either convert all text to outlines, or embed the fonts. Some fonts may be native only to your operating system; if the fonts are not embedded, parts of the graphic may be distorted or missing when opened on another computer.

Typefaces and type sizes should be consistent in all your graphics and tables. Type should appear approximately 9-10 point when viewed at full size.
