Neither of us have really have a solid answer for this one, mostly because we have no idea what your skill set is. Both have the potential to look terrible. Having a happy collaboration is probably more important than winning whatever argument you’re having. Additionally though, saying something is ‘computer generated’ seems to dismiss whatever skill (and there’s a lot) is brought to digital lettering… there’s still a hand involved (we do take your point and are not being intentionally obtuse but it would perhaps be helpful to discard this particular dichotomy.) Granted, there is a kind of ineffable quality to the hand lettering of say, Dustin Harbin, but how many of us are Dustin Harbin? If there’s any doubt about your ability to pull this off, perhaps lettering on an overlay or a digital blue line is the way to go. Having said that, maybe give some solid consideration to the fact that is also useful to exploit the ability to fine tune and edit which digital lettering provides. I would also suggest you might want to look at generating a font for your project which is what we did for Moving Pictures (and others) using a service like fontifier.com. The results are not perfect and you still end up having to make a myriad of tiny corrections to kerning but we were generally happy with the end product.
