    There's no need to change the DPI. Illustrator is vector-based which means you can print it the size of the earth (if a printer had that capability).

    When you save a file and want to embed the font, it will ask you in the dialogue box when you are saving. Check the box to embed.

    I don't recommend embedding fonts because of problems so I usually change all my fonts to outlines and then save it as a separate file. This way you'll have your native file to go back to and edit the text.

    Oki thanks for that answer....

    What do you mean by saving the fonts in a seperate file?
