If you have had problems with fonts in your digital print environment, then this subject has been tailor-made for you. Especially for all of you that are taking in what customers have told you are “print-ready” PDF files. You know the ones we are talking about—those files that seem to take a long time to process, print with poor quality, have missing or distorted font characters, or perhaps error prepress or printer processes resulting in no print being produced at all.

Solimar Systems - FONT Doesn’t Have to Be a Four-Letter Word in Your Print Shop

The good news is that “font” doesn’t have to be akin to other four-letter words. In fact, our team here at Solimar Systems has engineered a new solution that will take away many, if not all, of your font woes. What’s more is that this comes in a software solution that can be fully automated, lights-out, and easily integrated into current prepress or other processes that your organization performs prior to the actual printing, archiving, or other processes.

Let us introduce you to our recently announced ReadyPDF® Prepress Server™. Designed to handle the most complex variable print PDF files, ReadyPDF server is one of the only print workflow solutions on the market that can optimize, cleanse and repair PDF files creating the most optimal file for printing, electronic delivery, and archival storage. And one of its market-leading features is the ability to address subset font issues, Type 3 fonts, and the ability to replace a font family by loading it into the font library.

Being able to identify and correct these font issues as part of your prepress or file preparation process before printing is not only a time-saver, it is also a cost-saver. Our current customers see lower processing times, printers running at expected or rated speeds, and better overall output from their print devices. Imagine less time debugging, less waste, and less frustration with the benefits of higher profit margins and the ability to process or take on more work.


Solimar Systems enables organizations around the globe to onboard, make ready, enhance, manage and deliver print and digital communications. As an early adopter of the PDF output format, our Chemistry™ platform optimizes and drives a variety of print and electronic workflows including transactional and direct mail printing, accessibility, archive services, …
