What can I do when a client sends a file with a font I don’t have?

When we get a file from someone else, it often includes fonts that we may not have in our system. When we open these files, our system often substitutes a default or a close match font for the included font. In cases like this, it is always good to ask that the sender include the font file with their graphic file. If that is not possible, then you might ask them to convert fonts to curves or, in Illustrator, to outlines prior to sending.
