The outlines of convert to path text DON'T have thickness as a default in most draw programs. However, there is a different system for calculating the printout antialiasing for vector art and for text (and of course there is no hinting on vector art), so such text can appear very different -- especially in low-res lasers. In my experience there is little difference between convert-to-path text and normal text when output to a high-res lino.
