Screen Font

A computer file containing bit map outlines of a particular typeface used to display that font on the computer monitor. As bit maps, screen fonts occasionally look fine and legible at the resolution of the computer display, but are of too low a resolution for high-quality typographic output. Most computers also utilize vector-based printer fonts which can be downloaded to the printer. See also Printer Font. Also called a bit map font.
