Glossary of Printing Terms:
Bitmap Font Files

A stored pixel based image of a letterform at a specific size and resolution. On digital output devices such as terminal screens and line printers this format was an extremely fast and efficient way to represent a character’s image.

Modern digital devices vary in resolution and use intelligent software (commonly called a rasterizer) to generate images from outline font files.
