Standard Fonts
Our Art Department has access to hundreds of premium and royalty free fonts. Nevertheless, to avoid font problems, all text with non-standard fonts should be converted to outline:

- In Adobe Illustrator: Select Type, Then Create Outlines (Cmd+Shift+O)

- In CorelDraw: Select Arrange, Then Convert to Curves (Ctrl+Q)

Finally, the following ABB Standard Fonts are provided to simplify design, and reduce font applications. They also happen to be our favorites!

All tags are produced with stringent quality standards for a smooth and easy application. In automatic applications the final packaging also needs to be clearly specified including whether the tags are to be on rolls or fanfold, quantity per roll (typically 1,000), inside core diameter (standard 3" core ID), and roll unwind direction (specify by number):
