I'd love a pre-flight checklist

I’m just about finished with a 10-weight typeface, and I’m hesitant to export it out of fear that I’ve forgotten to do something somewhere. I’d like to make sure it’s ready. Does anyone know of a checklist available anywhere that I could run through to make sure I’ve tied up any loose ends? If not, I think that would be a great addition to this site.


Miguel Sousa from Adobe shared their pre-flight checklist at TypoTechnica 2007. It might be outdated, but I believe it is a valid start point: http://blogs.adobe.com/typblography/files/typblography/typotechnica2007/TypoTechnica2007_StateOfTheArt_Font_QE.pdf

Actually, this is a more complete link: http://blog.typekit.com/2007/05/22/typotechnica_2007/

Thanks! This helps a lot

Send it to graphic designers to test. That usually turns up bugs in a heartbeat.
