How to Embed Fonts in your Event Program or Booklet Printing Files

When you are sending your Event Program or Booklet printing files outside your organization to be printed, you will want to “embed”your fonts in the PDF file. This will insure that the printed event program or booklet will look exactly as you see it on your computer monitor. If you don’t embed your fonts in your PDF file, the outside printer may not have your font in their system and acrobat will automatically substitute a different font when printing.

When you “embed fonts” it simply means that all of the font information used to make your event program or booklet printing document look the way it does is stored in the PDF file.  Then, no matter what fonts your printer has in their system, they will be able to print your event program or booklet printing file as you intended.

We recommend that you set up your Acrobat to embed fonts as a default setting. Having Acrobat embed all fonts whenever it is making a PDF file for you does not cause any problems and will certainly eliminate font substitutions when you least expect.

To set up your Acrobat Distiller to embed fonts as a default:

  •  Go to  “Start”  select “Printers and Faxes”
  •  Right Click on Acrobat Distiller.
  •  Click on Printing Preferences.
  •  Go to  Adobe PDF tab.
  •  Set Default settings to High Quality Print or Press Quality
  •  Click Edit button on right. Click on Fonts
  •  Select “Embed all Fonts”
  •  Select OK.

You have just set your Acrobat Distiller to embed all fonts every time you make a PDF file.

If  you are sending a Microsoft Word document outside your organization it would probably be a good idea to embed the fonts on the document before you send it to your printer.

To save a document with fonts embedded in a Microsoft Word Document:

  •  Select “Save As” from the “File” Menu.
  •  Select “Tools”
  •  Select “Options”.
  •  Click on “Embed Fonts in File”
  •  Deselect “Do not embed common system fonts”  (You don’t always know where this file is going to be opened)

You have just embedded all fonts in a Microsoft Word event program or booklet file
