Emigre Fonts is a digital type foundry and publisher of type specimens and artist books based in Berkeley, California. From 1984 until 2005 Emigre published the legendary Emigre magazine, a quarterly publication devoted to visual communication. The Emigre font library features more than 600 original typefaces, including Mrs Eaves, Brothers, Matrix and Filosofia.

This font looks very much like the output of an old 8-Pin dot-matrix printer, like the Epson FX-80. Very interesting to re-create documents looking like "old" computers, or computerized bills.------Back in 1987, I was working with a now antique Apple IIe and a then brand newApple IIc, as well as an IBM-PC clone (Panasonic Senior Partner) on a projectthat was to become MatchFont. That software allowed machines of the time touse fonts on dot-matrix printers, such as the good old Epson FX-80 I had then,or the Apple Imagewriter. Eventualy, MatchFont helped people to use fonts onthese rather slow printers, and to get unusual fonts, at least for these character-based computers. Eventually, the printers got even slower, but the results where, at least at the time, better than even a Mac.To-day, these technological monsters are gone. But I still remember the longhours passed on the 9x18 matrix of the MatchFont editor. I then created some great marvels, such as Japanese, or a sideways font.8-Pin Matrix reminded me of that good'ol time, as while creating it, I foundback the familiar limitations of that format.I hope you will find interesting this little font, looking very much like the FX-80 outputs.As this is meant to really look like the output from an old dot-matrixprinter, do not be surprised if you do not find kerninbg or proportionalcharacters spacing. All this was still science fiction, at the time. So, thisfont offers monospace, and no kerning. Incidently, it means it will work aswell a did, before, monospaced printed output, especially for numbers andspreadsheet.

AWB Editor is an easy to use program to create and print various air freight related documents. It can print AWBs both on pre-printed forms using a dot matrix printer and on blank paper using a laser printer. And also supports other documents such as manifests, dangerous goods declarations,barcoded labels and bills of lading.
For vector images, there is no equivalent of resampling an image when it is resized, and there is no PPI in the file because it is resolution independent (prints equally well at all sizes). However, there is still a target printing size. Some image formats, such as Photoshop format, can contain both bitmap and vector data in the same file. Adjusting the PPI in a Photoshop file will change the intended printing size of the bitmap portion of the data and also change the intended printing size of the vector data to match. This way the vector and bitmap data maintain a consistent size relationship when the target printing size is changed. Text stored as outline fonts in bitmap image formats is handled in the same way. Other formats, such as PDF, are primarily vector formats which can contain images, potentially at a mixture of resolutions. In these formats the target PPI of the bitmaps is adjusted to match when the target print size of the file is changed. This is the converse of how it works in a primarily bitmap format like Photoshop, but has exactly the same result of maintaining the relationship between the vector and bitmap portions of the data.
A consequence of Apple's decision was that the widely used 10-point fonts from the typewriter era had to be allotted 10 display pixels in em height, and 5 display pixels in x-height. This is technically described as 10 pixels per em (PPEm). This made 10-point fonts be rendered crudely and made them difficult to read on the display screen, particularly the lowercase characters. Furthermore, there was the consideration that computer screens are typically viewed (at a desk) at a distance 30% greater than printed materials, causing a mismatch between the perceived sizes seen on the computer screen and those on the printouts.
PREAMBLEThe goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership with others.
The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded, redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives, however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

Most graphic designers knows a lot about fonts and typography. But do you have all the knowledge involved with creating a good font? Surprisingly or not, there is a lot to learn and practice before a decent font can be created. No matter how talented you are.
Use the PostScript Options panelof the Advanced Print Setup dialog box toset options for a particular PostScript printer. These options includehow to handle nonresident printer fonts and whether to downloadAsian fonts. If a PDF contains device-dependent settings, such ashalftones and transfer functions, these settings can be sent inthe PostScript output to override the default settings in the printer.To use these options, you must be connected to a PostScript printer orhave a PostScript printer driver installed with a PPD file selected.
Downloads all fonts and resources at the start of the printjob. The fonts and resources remain on the printer until the jobhas finished printing. This option is the fastest but uses the mostprinter memory.
Downloads fonts and resources before printing the first page thatuses them, and then discards them when they are no longer needed.This option uses less printer memory. However, if a PostScript processorreorders the pages later in the workflow, the font downloading canbe incorrect, resulting in missing fonts. This option does not workwith some printers.
If Download Asian Fonts is not selected,the PDF prints correctly only if the referenced fonts are installedon the printer. If the printer has similar fonts, the printer substitutesthose. If there are no suitable fonts on the printer, Courier isused for the text.
Some fonts cannot be downloaded to a printer, either becausethe font is a bitmap or because font embedding is restricted inthat document. In these cases, a substitute font is used for printing,and the printed output may not match the screen display.
ZL: Prior to the Macintosh computer, the design of typefaces had existed for centuries as an exclusive discipline reserved for specialists, who had access to proprietary tools. Today the personal computer provides the opportunity to create custom type designs with an increased potential for personalization and expression. When we began using the Macintosh computer, my husband, Rudy VanderLans had recently started publishing Emigre magazine. Our design of custom fonts for Emigre magazine grew out of our need for unique and more effective fonts than those originally available for the Macintosh in 1984. As graphic designers, we also enjoyed the new found ability to test and implement the faces directly within our design work.
My first Emigre font designs were in the form of bitmap fonts for use on dot matrix printers. After the introduction of high resolution PostScript outline technology, I developed my first high resolution designs based upon my earlier bitmaps.
My interest in making type was initiated by my need for legible and visually interesting bitmaps for the early Macintosh computer screen and dot matrix printer. After the introduction of high resolution PostScript outline technology, I developed several high resolution designs based upon my earlier bitmaps. These include the Modula, Matrix, Narly, Citizen and Triplex designs. Recently I have revisited some of these early bitmap ideas with my Base 9 and Base 12 font designs. The Base families offered compatible screen and printer fonts to solve the dual need of early low resolution screen display and high resolution printing with an integrated typeface design. 2b1af7f3a8
