FAQ
This depends on the file type. As image files do not preserve the font within the file, it is essentially a frozen graphic and can be blurry when you zoom up close. PDFs retain some coding of the font so when you zoom up close, it is clear and crisp.
You may need to check your image resolution or ensure that you are downloading at the correct dpi.
Is your printer asking for embedded fonts in your Lucidpress document? Here’s what you (and your printer) need to know.

Lucidpress does not embed fonts in documents. When a Lucidpress document is downloaded, the text is generated as an image and invisible text is placed behind the text.

When printing Lucidpress documents with professional printers, an embed text error may occur. However, the invisible text is a non-issue for them, and they can disregard any error messages they see regarding embedded fonts.

Your document will print without any problems, but the printer's software may show an error message about embedded fonts. The lack of embedded fonts will have no effect on your printed documents, and printers should disregard this error message.
