About Outline Fonts

Sometimes you may need your text in a hollow effect and outline fonts or hollow fonts can satisfy your needs. Outline fonts are designed with the internal area of a glyph transparent. As outline fonts may look blurred in very small sizes, they are often used in large sizes and sometimes with 3D or shadow effects to add the artistic look of texts. It should be noted that outline fonts can also be referred to as one of the three basic kinds of computer font formats, the other two are raster fonts and stroke fonts. The difference of them lie in that raster fonts are made of images and can not be scaled while outline fonts and stroke fonts  are scalable. Now  most fonts we use on computer are outline fonts. Gothic Outline designed by Kingsley/ATF is a typical font family of outline style.
