    Hi all, So I made my Boarding Pass STD's, using several fonts that I downloaded from Dafont.com. There you can get a ton of fonts that are really cool, including SC by the Sea, which has a starfish, shells, etc. The TIP here is that when I went to the printer (I used FedEx Kinkos), their computer did not recognize the fonts, so I had to drive home, save all the fonts that I had downloaded to my flash drive, and then Kinkos loaded those fonts onto their computer! Otherwise, their computer just made substitutions that did not look right!! So just something to keep in mind when you download fonts, just save the files also to your flash drive! Hope this is helpful for those making their STD's!!

            I always make a PDF of my file so I don't have to worry about the different fonts that I used.

                      When I need to convert my documents to PDF I use PrimoPDF (FREE!), which acts as a printer and saves the document as a PDF.
