Who will embed fonts for me in a PDF so that it can be uploaded here?

I pay for the service. In advance if necessary. Just let me know. Thanks, Jimmy

    Hi Grailseeker,

    You can embed fonts using the free PDF software DoPDF. If you prefer to have someone else do it, you can contact me via my website. Just click on the Print Book and Ebook Formatting Services link in my signature.

    If you create the book with a Desk Top Publishing software (e.g. Scribus), you can simply check this box in the dialog box when creating the PDF.

    If you create the book with a word processor (e.g. LibreOffice Writer) you can set this *before* creating the PDF: In the menu File - Properties...  on the Font tab. Export it as "PDF/A-1a" and the fonts are just embedded...

    Paying someone for it can be difficult because they must have the same fonts on their PC to embed them. If you now have a special font, e.g. for the title, he would have to buy it first just to embed it.

    Also note that some fonts CANNOT be embedded unless you buy a full license for them. A lot of fonts on the internet are "for personal use only" and have the ability to be embedded turned off. In those cases you need to find the font foundry that made the font and purchase a full version that has embedding turned on.

    Also, if you use Word it can Save As a PDF.

    This is useful >>

    Lulu's Wizard tools can actually handle many common fonts without them being embedded >>

    (Note that Lulu's Help pages often assume you are using Word.)

    Those fonts are also the easiest to read, so are recommended for books.
