Same advertising stuff. They're talking about formats in which material should be submitted

text converted to outlines
Explanation:
It's an Illustrator, FreeHand, Photoshop feature:
text is converted to outlines, so that each letter actually becomes a composite vector path and not based on fonts anymore
(this way it will print even if the required fonts are not available; this is usually done as final step, as text conterted to outlines is no longer editable as normal text)

[immagini allegate: embedded images; do not use "attached" here to translate allegate in this context]
