Object > Expand on font seems to change the weight of the font
I am creating a logo for a client, I have two simple lines of text in Ai.
I have duplicated the logo and moved the copy below the original so I can compare the 2.
It seems that when I do Object > Expand on the copy, it seems a bit bolder. Why would this be happening?
I will be providing the client with an .eps. Is there any reason to expand the text vs. regular text?
It's likely the result of losing the font's hinting. If you print the two they should appear the same. You can also try exporting both to a raster format and see how the output changes.
Personally, I'd just send a PDF with fonts embedded. But I've debated that issue enough for one day ;)
