Business People Looking At A Logo Font

How To Install And Use Your Custom Logo Font

How To Install Your Custom Logo Font

PC - Windows

Windows XP
Save the attached font file into your windows\fonts directory. The directory path is normally c:\windows\fonts or c:\WINNT\fonts. (Save using the same filename that the font has been given, including the .ttf extension). How you save the attachment will depend on the email program you are using. If you are using Microsoft Outlook, right-clicking on the file will allow you to 'save as...' to the fonts directory.

Saving the font into your fonts folder will normally install the font without any further action. If you cannot find the font listed when you open a word processor, the easiest thing is to re-start you computer and the font will be installed. Alternatively, you can open Control Panel and then open the Fonts folder. Opening the Fonts folder is usually enough to ensure that the font is installed.

Windows Vista
Save the font file anywhere in your 'Documents' folder. (Save using the same filename that the font has been given, including the .ttf extension). How you save the attachment will depend on the email program you are using. If you are using Microsoft Outlook, right-clicking on the file will allow you to 'save as...' to your Documents folder.

Locate the font file where is has been saved and right-click on it. In the menu that appears after right-clicking, select 'Install' and confirm that this is OK to do. The font will now be installed.

Windows 8
Save the font file anywhere in your 'Documents' folder. (Save using the same filename that the font has been given, including the .ttf extension). How you save the attachment will depend on the email program you are using. If you are using Microsoft Outlook, right-clicking on the file will allow you to 'save as...' to your Documents folder.

Locate the font file where is has been saved and double click it, then click Install from the preview window

Problems?
If you have any problems with installing the font, please refer to your Windows help files for more information.

Macintosh

Important: Mac users should also see our Terms & Conditions regarding the installation of fonts for use on the Mac.

Mac OS X users can use the True Type Font file (fontname.ttf) as supplied. Open the folder into which you saved your Logo Font file. Copy the Logo Font file and paste into your Home / Fonts folder. This will install it and allow you to use it within most programs that use True Type fonts.

If you are using Mac OS 9 or before, drop the font file (fontname.mtt.bin) onto the Stuffit Expander icon. The font will be reconstituted and can then be installed on your Mac.

If this is not successful, you can convert the ttf file into a Mac format font file using this free conversion utility.

Please follow the instructions in the relevant help files.

How to use your Logo Font

Basic, Single Colour Fonts

Once you have installed your Logo Font, open up your favourite word processor program and type any of the letters or characters that your logo has been assigned to. For example, if your logo is assigned to capital letter 'A', then type this letter in your document.

Use your cursor to highlight the letter you have just typed and change the font to your Logo Font. Your logo appears!

You can change the colour and size of your logo character just as you can with any other font character you would type.

Note: If you want to use a size that is not in the size menu (e.g. 200 point) then simply type the size you require in the size box.

If you have purchased several variants of your font, you can type them consecutively to build up combinations of the images you have supplied.

Experiment with the size, left and right alignment to position you logo on the page. For detailed information regarding positioning of characters on the page, please read the relevant help information that came with your software.

Multi-Colour Fonts

Using The Supplied Version
The easiest way to use your multi-coloured logo font is to open up the Microsoft Word document that accompanied your font and copy and paste the logo into any document you want to use it in. (See below for information on re-sizing your logo).

Manual Insertion
If you are unable to open the Word Document, or for some other reason cannot copy and paste your logo, here is the method for adding your logo:

As per the instructions above, once you have installed your font, open up your favourite word processor. The instructions that were supplied with your font will give details about the letters and associated colours* that have been assigned to your font.

*Note: The colour numbers (RGB values) are suggestions only, based on the colours in electronic or hard copy materials supplied. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that colours are accurately matched to their own company logo standard.

In the example below, the colour logo is constructed using the letters 'A', 'B' and 'C'.Type the letters and change to the required colours

Letter 'A' is blue (R 31, G 114, B 148)
Letter 'B' is orange (R 254, G 155, B 48)
Letter 'C' is grey (R 192, G 192, B 192).

If you are using Microsoft Office 2000 or a later program version, you can accurately select the colours using the R G B (Red, Green, Blue) colour values supplied with your font. Click on the 'More Colours...' option when selecting the colour of a character, then click on the 'Custom Tab'. Ensure that the 'RGB' option is selected and type in the colour numbers supplied with your font. This will ensure that your logo colours are accurately reproduced.

(Important Note: Earlier versions of Microsoft Office only provide access to the basic 16-Colour Windows palette).When your font is selected your colour logo will appear

Having typed the required letters, and changed their colours, highlight all of the characters and change the font to your Custom Logo Font. A colour version of your logo will appear!

Changing the size and position of your logo

Provided that any changes you make to size and position affect all of the characters in your colour logo, you can adjust it just like a single colour logo font. You may need to use 'Select all' to make sure that all of the colour layers are changed. If you have problems re-sizing your logo font, change it back to standard font (such as 'Arial') to make your changes, then change it back to your logo font once you are happy with it.

Experiment with the size, left and right alignment to position you logo on the page. For detailed information regarding positioning of characters on the page, please read the relevant help information supplied with the software you are using.

Making your colour logo ITALIC or BOLD

We do not recommend changes your colour logo to italic or bold, as it is very likely that it will degrade the image by changing the way that the different colour layers line up with each other.

How to improve the appearance of your font

On screen
You can improve the appearance of your Custom Logo Font on screen in Windows XP by switching on 'Clear Type' if you haven't done so already. This anti-aliases (smoothes the jagged edges) on fonts and can improve the appearance significantly.

An easy way to do this, and test the clear type settings, is to go to Microsoft's Clear Type page at http://www.microsoft.com/typography/cleartype/tuner/1.htm.

Alternatively, in Windows XP, go to Start > Control Panel > Appearance & themes > Display > Appearance Effects > Use the following method to smooth screen fonts - Select 'Clear Type'.

Windows Vista has Clear Type turned on by default.

On paper
Your Custom Logo Font will provide the best results when printed on paper.

Use your highest quality printer settings when printing documents containing your logo. The Custom Logo Font will allow you to produce output that may match that of a professional print studio.

Up ArrowBack to Menu


Backup Your Font!

Remember to make a copy of your logo font. If you make regular backups (which you should do if you have any data on your hard disk that you cannot afford to lose) you should ensure that you place a copy of your font in a directory that will be included in your backup.

We recommend that you employ a backup strategy to protect your data in the event of hard disk failure.

We will only retain your font for a guaranteed 30 days from the date we produce it (unless you've agreed to your font to be included in our Examples page). After that, we will not be able to provide you with a copy of your font should you lose it .

Using your Custom Logo Font in e-mail messages

Your Custom Logo Font is most suited to producing printed, hard copies of documents containing your logo. You can use it for electronic documentation, but please consider some of the limitations given below.

Unfortunately, at this moment in time there is no easy way to 'embed' fonts in e-mail messages. This means that, unless the recipient of an e-mail containing your logo font already has the font installed on their computer, they will not see your logo

The easiest way to ensure that the recipient sees your Custom Logo Font in electronic documents is to attach your document to the e-mail message as a PDF document or in a Microsoft Word document (ensuring that the 'embed font' option is selected - see below for more information).

If you are certain that the recipient already has your font installed, or has easy access and the technical ability to install it, you can also use later versions Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express to send a message containing your Custom Logo Font. Some web based e-mail services also support custom fonts, but also rely on the font to be installed. If your company runs an internal intranet, provided all users have the font installed on their individual computers, you logo can be used internally within e-mail messages.

NOTE: If you are technically minded, please go to the Morovia Fontware web site which contains some interesting articles and links about embedding fonts in web pages and e-mail messages using the '@font-face' method..

Sending your message as a Microsoft Word Document

If you decide to send your message as an attached Word document, the important thing to remember is to embed your font in the document.

Note: The method we describe below is for Word 97, but is similar for later versions of Word.

Open up Microsoft Word, and start a new document.

Before you save your message, ensure that you have selected the option to embed True Type fonts, as explained below.

Click 'Tools' on the menu, then select 'Options'. Click on the the 'Save' tab - the screen-shot below shows the dialogue box you should now see.

How to embed a font

To embed your Custom Logo font in the Word document you wish to send, check the 'Embed True Type Fonts' box (arrowed). To reduce the file size, be sure to also check the 'Embed characters in use only' box (arrowed).

Once you have completed creating the document that contains your logo, save the file. Your Custom Logo font will also be saved within the file.

You can then attach the Word Document (.doc file) to an e-mail in the same way you would attach any other file to an e-mail message.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order a custom logo font?

To order a custom logo font you must first request a quotation. This requires the completion of a form (either on-line or as a hard copy) and the submission of your logo so that we can check the suitability for conversion. You can either upload your logo to our server as an image file, or mail a hard copy in the post.

If your logo is suitable for conversion, and you find the price acceptable, you will be asked to make payment for the service.

Your completed logo font is e-mailed to you.

Full instructions can be found on the Instructions Page.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

Are all logos suitable for conversion into a font?Logo with colour gradients

Not all logos are suitable for conversion into a font. Font characters cannot contain gradient colours*, and extremely detailed images do not convert well as they require too much system memory.

Logo with colour gradients after conversion into a font*Gradient colours are where the colours change continually from one hue to another, or from one level of brightness to another. A font character or element can only be one colour at a time.

If your logo has gradient colours, or a lot of detail, we may decline to convert your logo into a font. Alternatively we may give a quotation and send you a modified, simplified impression of how the logo would look if we converted it into a font. This will then allow you to decide if you want to go ahead with the conversion process.

There is more information about the problems caused by gradient colours on the Instructions Page.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

Can I see a demonstration of how my font will look?

If we feel that your logo font will look markedly different to the logo sample you have supplied (for example if the logo contains gradient colours - see above), we will send an illustration to show you how it will look when it has been converted. However, we do not normally provide a preview of a font before it is purchased.

If you want an indication of the quality of a custom logo font, please visit the Demonstration and Examples pages. The Examples page contains some good examples of fonts that have been created from Quantum Enterprises logos, and from customers whose logos have been converted and have given permission for them to be shown on the Examples page..

If you decide that you would like an example of your logo on our Examples page, you will also receive a link back to your own website. This can improve your search engine rankings, so we ask you to give some serious consideration to this option.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

Do I have to pay a license fee to use my logo font?

No, there are no licensing fees to pay. Once the logo font has been purchased there are no additional costs.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

How many computers can my font be installed on?

You can use your logo font on as many computers and in as many applications as you wish. The font is completely yours and there are no copyright restrictions.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

I see that Quantum Enterprises uses PayPal. Do you need a PayPal account to make a purchase?

No! It is still a common misconception that you need to open a PayPal account to pay through PayPal. This is not true. PayPal will process your credit card details just like any other online payment system. You will be given the option to open a PayPal account at the end of your purchase, but this is completely optional.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

How do I checkout and complete my purchase?

To complete your purchase, click on the shopping basket icon (Shopping Basket) near to the top right of the page. You will then be taken to a PayPal screen where you can provide the necessary details.

How do I know what is in my shopping basket?

To see what is in your shopping basket, click on the shopping basket icon (Shopping Basket) near to the top right of the page.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

I'm having problems paying using PayPal - what should I do?

PayPal, like many Internet based services, sometimes has problems with the sheer volume of people using it. This can reduce its speed and make it seem like it is not responding. If this seems to be the case, try again an hour or so later, perhaps when there are likely to be less people on line.

If PayPal is rejecting your credit card information, please make absolutely sure you are entering the correct information. Make sure that your credit card is one of the recognised major cards. Check that your card has not expired and enter the details that match those on the card.

The security numbers (CAPTCHA) at the bottom of the payment screen do not have spaces between them - we have had customers who have been unable to complete a purchase because they thought that spaces were required.

If you have already created a PayPal account, PayPal will expect you to use it. It will not allow you to make a credit card payment as if you didn't already have an account. However, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT YOU CAN MAKE A PURCHASE WITH A CREDIT CARD, AND DO NOT NEED TO OPEN A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE.

If you are still unable to resolve the problem, and cannot pay by another method, please contact PayPal directly.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

How else can I pay, other than using PayPal?

Payment for products or services may be made in the following ways:

Please make Money Orders, Postal Orders and Cheques payable to 'Quantum Enterprises'. Money orders must be made out in UK Pounds Sterling (£).

PayPal is the preferred method of payment, as it is secure and the quickest method.

Please allow up to 5 working days for cheques, money orders and postal orders to be processed and cleared.

As you are based in the UK, do you ship to the USA or other parts of the world?

Although our prices are quoted in UK Pounds Sterling (with an approximate conversion in US Dollars) we will accept your order from most countries in the world, in any of the main currencies. Sometimes there may be two order buttons - one for customers in the UK and another for customers outside of the UK. This is to allow for increased international shipping costs. Please select the payment button that matches your geographic location.

Up ArrowBack to Menu

Your prices are in Pounds (£). How am I charged outside of the UK?

Don't worry about the fact that prices are in UK Pounds Sterling, or converting the UK price into your currency, your credit card company will do this when you make your payment.
