Default Can someone convert a document for me? Publisher to pdf

I have a business card I have made in publisher 2010. However vista print does not support the font I am using and when I upload it changes the font.
I have saved it as a pdf through publisher, however it looks grainy and I dont want to order grainy business cards.

If I can email someone the publisher file, could you convert it to a pdf with proper resolution so that I can upload it to vista print?

I dont have photoshop or illustrator so I cant do it. Vista print is much cheaper than my local guy where he wants 95 dollars for 500 cards.

Thanks!

Why don't you just install one of the very many 'print to pdf' utilities? Maybe cutepdf?

Also you could ask what file formats they support? PS maybe?

Personnally I don't use pdf because most of the free pdf writers don't often adhere to the Adobe standard and you get all sorts of issues. As an aside I only used Vistaprint once for business cards and they went straight in the bin.

In the cutepdf driver there is an option for custom size ps file try that.

Out of curiosity I've just created a simple BC and through Publisher saved as a PDF.

Its not gone grainy and opens up quite happily in AcroReader and I can zoom in to 1600% and its fine.

Are you sure its not a setting you've missed. I just picked high quality as print and then Save As?

Might be my system as I have Acrobat Pro (but it wont open the Publisher file direct) but I can save as PDF as above.

Your welcome to send me the pub file and I'll save as to see what it comes out as. As a precaution I'd send the fonts your using along with it just in case

Edit : Have Photoshop and Illustrator somewhere, think on old desktop I took out as I use laptop all time now

95 for 500! Those would have to be full color on both sides on premium stock, maybe gold plated! Find another printer. I pay $60 for 1000 full color single-sided on glossy stock.

Through publisher you should have the option of saving as a pdf. Does it still come out horrible looking?

I've got Publisher and Acrobat installed so I should be able to do the conversion for you. Send me a p.m. and I'll give you my email to send it to.
