About Laserfonts:

A laserfont consists of two or three parts:

1 The bitmap screen fonts (suitcase icon with "A"). This
file gives you a screen representation of the image the
laser will produce, so you can get an idea where the font
will actually fall on the page. Install them into your
SYSTEM FILE using your Font/DA Mover, selecting the sizes
you use the most for that particular font.

2 The Laserfont (usually a laser icon with a RTS document
This file contains the actual Postscript* description of
each character in the font. To use this file, simply drag
it into you SYSTEM FOLDER. Since this is an outline
description of the characters of the font it is referred to
as a vector-based font, that is, the outline travels from
point to point, so the resolution of these fonts is
dependent on the resolution of your Postscript* printer.
(i.e. on a laserwriter this would be 300 dpi, on a
Linotronic* 100 it would be 1270dpi, and a Linotronic 300
would give you an incredible 2540dpi. NOTE: the space
character is not porportional to its laser equivilent,
therefore NEVER use the pace bar to line up type for laser
output, use the TAB only! It requires a little more work,
but the results are worth it. You can thatnk the wonderful
folks at Adobe* for the powerful Postscript* language that
makes todayUs desktop publishing a reality.

3 The AFM file (plain document with font name & R.AFMS)
This document contains the font designerUs RkerningS
information for that particular font. Kerning is the
individual spacing between two adjacent letters, and their
adjustment (together or apart) to look correct. The classic
example is an uppercase RAS next to an uppercase RVS as in
RHAVES. If the RAVS has kerning applied, the upper left
arm of the RVS would tuck over the lower right foot of the
RAS, thus giving a visually acceptable presentation of our
example word RHAVES. So please use the kerning file for
every laserfont (if the designer was considerate enough to
make one).

The laserfonts I am producing are being distributed on a
SHAREWARE basis. I am keeping the fees nominal so that
everyone can afford my fonts. Please send in the $5
registration fee for each font you keep (so that I can
continue to produce Rhigh quality /low costS laserfonts) and
I will send you future notices on new releases as they occur
Thank you for supporting SHAREWARE! Please send to:
Gary Garrett
11330 Pine Acres Road
Jacksonville, Florida 32217

Feel free to pass copies of my fonts to your friends, but
please pass them in the RstuffedS format to retain the
shareware information with each font, Thanks.

If you want oto make your own laserfonts, you can do so by
using AtsysUs Fontographer*, or several other font/logo
generation programs. If you want to design printer
resolution dependent graphics, try Adobe Illustrator*, Aldus
Freehand*, Cricket Draw*, MacDraw*, or any of the other
object oriented (vector-based) drawing program.

Pagemaker* note: Better results are obtained by turning
off the auto-kerning function of Pagemaker* (as it would be
kerned by my AFM file and by Pagemaker*)
