may help in you're getting SVG or other export from
your design... rather than trying to convert the PDF
output, start over with your original design... this can
be rendered SVG in several applications...
...if you will then do the same with your typography,
the two can be edited together for a final SVG including
Also, don't be too critical of the print shop's file format
limitations... most print shops start with the format most
familiar to them, and then expand with customer demand
The process I suggest is a matter of five minutes...
well worth saving the $50 "conversion" fee... and you're
not really sure they'd do it very well either :)
