    Where is the printing cut-off edge? Are the grid lines in each key outline just margin suggestions and alignment guides? Or do the grid lines also indicate any form of printing edge? Thanks!

    Hello Vince, 

    You can print all the way to the edge of the key outline, the grid is just to help you align things :)

    Will any font on my system work or are my options limited to a specific set? Thanks!

    Hello Oliver

    You can use any font you'd like, just be sure to expand/convert your font to vector data (shape data) before submitting your file to us.

    Is it best to use only simple objects if we are doing custom legends? If we use vectors that are dense or complex, will the detail be lost in the print?

    We can print at 600+ dpi, so some amount of fine detail is possible, but please note the small size is more the limiting factor in being able to see the detail.

    so if I were to copy/paste cropped images from a layout on google images to make an Aurebesh keyboard, and if some of the characters were slightly fainter or pixelated, then they will still print?

    Hi,

    We will do what we can to have the images print as cleanly as possible, but a very low resolution image will be hard to deal with. We recommend at least 200x200px for 1x1 size keys.

    I would like to ask about fonts. I live in Hungary so we have some extra accented characters (ő and ű). I re-drew fonts by my hand in Fontlab (because these accented characters were not included in the Bank Gothic font pack), and created layout in Adobe Illustrator. So is it OK for you?

    Hello Robert, 

    You don't have to worry about fonts because you're going to be converting all of your fonts and text to vector data before submitting your file to us, when it comes to our end it's just going to be shapes that are easily read by our systems :)
