InfoPrint Font Collection V3.2

Control document appearance, reinforce your brand

How can you increase the appeal and readability of business communications or books? Customize them with typefaces. You can express a style, set a tone, and get messages across more quickly, all while reinforcing your corporate brand.

The InfoPrint Font Collection offers typeface choices that aid local and global communication efforts. The collection consists of character sets and Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP™) code pages, which allow you to print in more than 50 languages. You can print documents in familiar typefaces such as Helvetica, Times New Roman and Courier, and use WorldType fonts, which are TrueType/OpenType fonts that deliver the greatest flexibility for designing documents with exactly the appearance you want.

In addition to increasing your ability to control the appearance of your documents, the InfoPrint Font Collection can help you improve the output quality of legacy AFP applications by substituting outline fonts for raster fonts in certain situations.

A basic set of fonts in three technologies that can be used in creating Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP™) applications:

  • AFP raster fonts in 240 and 300 dots per inch
  • AFP outline fonts
  • TrueType/Open Type fonts

Continue to utilize applications that specify raster fonts, and low-resolution printers that use raster fonts.

Improve output quality with the use of AFP outline fonts.

Simplify your migration to TrueType/OpenType technology by working with a starter set of fonts.

Compatibility with our software

Improve print quality on high-resolution printers by using AFP or TrueType/OpenType outline fonts instead of raster fonts. Software solutions such as InfoPrint Manager and Ricoh ProcessDirector, and newer 600- or 1,200 dots-per-inch printers, can help automatically substitute equivalent AFP outline fonts for raster fonts if there is an outline font by the same name as the raster font.

InfoPrint fonts are installed on the server(s) on which your AFP jobs will be printed. When a font reference is encountered while processing a print job, the appropriate libraries are accessed and the fonts are downloaded to the printer, if they are not already resident or active in the printer.

On the application side, many document composition products access font libraries on the system on which your document is being created in order to obtain the correct metrics, or spacing for the fonts on the page. This is an important function to realize the document layout you intend when you design the document.
