    I would never use TTF to print. Nowadays most fonts have OTF format, which seems to be the best to go from print to digital and back.

    I'm new to the graphic design field but this was a good read.. no one ever mentioned anything about not using TTF fonts while I was in school, but then again we all started out on Illustrator (CS4 had just come out) and not Quark. In the few jobs I've worked on so far I've never had an issue using TTF, but like a lot of other people mentioned, I usually switch everything to outline before it goes anywhere.

    I hadn't any problems using ttf's until now too. I guess the only reason we should use otf instead is the ot version have the ot features, which ttf haven't. And window 7 display some ttf pretty ugly with all the alias. That's all I know.

    If you want to sleep tight at night after giving out project files to a printer, id strongly recommend getting the otf version of the font you are using

    TTF can be PostScript font also. How? TTF files may to have PS *encryption*, like OTF too. Checkout more info starting OTF and... tada! All files today have *turing* support within.

    ttf or otf. never had a problem with ttf when printing. if you want to be 100% safe, just create outlines or vectorize/smart object the text before printing.

    I would go for Opentype. I' ve had some bad experience with True Type fonts that have become corrupt. And the printing houses are often not happy when you deliver work that include True Type fonts.

    I generally recommend outlining fonts before sending to print just to be safe. It doesn't always go directly to the RIP, most of the time it goes through a designer first who will set up for the printer and if they don't have the fonts it's a big headache.
