File Types

RTF: Rich Text Format, a file type that most word processing programs can open. It also means you should be able to edit the file if you have a word processing program that can open the file. These files have been created using the most common fonts such as Arial in order to be accessible to the most number of people.

PDF: Portable Document Format, a file type that requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader to open. Most browsers these days already come with the plug-in. These files are not easily editable, however, you won't have to worry if you have the right font. You can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in.

AI: Adobe Illustrator format, a file type that was created using the Adobe Illustrator program. You will not be able to open this file unless you have Illustrator. If you do have Adobe Illustrator, you should be able to easily edit this document. The fonts have all been converted to outlines so that you don't have to worry about missing fonts.
