Welcome to technology ... or not ...

Days like today make me realize just how inept I am when it comes to technology ... any advice on this would sure be welcome ...

I am running out of labels.  My current label was designed and ordered back in 2009.  Time for an update.

I have a MacBook Pro.  I created the following in Word.  I took a screen shot of it from Preview and then brought it into Preview from the clipboard.  Then I saved it to a PDF.

Apparently, that didn't work.  Dianna from Custom Couture Label Company came back and said that it's too pixilated and the font is not embedded in the PDF.

Truth be known ... I only understand the "too pixilated" part ... but don't know how to fix that either and I don't have a clue how to embed the font ...

Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get this done ... Christmas is drawing near ;-).

Any and all thoughts welcome!
Lisa

  1. I can try and help, I use Pages not word on my mac though! I would open the word file you made then along the top of the screen (using pages!) you head to File>Export>PDF>Set "Image quality to "Best"> next>save to desk top.
    Hope that helps or sets you in the right direction :)

  2. We have Adobe Photoshop. Maybe this could be transferred to Photoshop and saved as a new file.

  3. You might have better luck printing it straight to PDF from Word. There might be an option there to embed the font. (What "font embedding" effectively means is if you used a special font, their computer doesn't have the same font, so only knows what characters you used. It can't display it in your chosen font unless you embed it within the document as well.)
