[scribus] Font question True Type vs Open Type

I've been having some problems with PDF files that local print shops 
can't use do to embedded / outlined font issues.

I found that of the two printers that I use, one accepts my pdfs  when 
fonts are outlined and the other accepts my pdfs when the fonts are 


Some of my non- True Type fonts will not "embed", i.e., when I try to 
embed them they will NOT migrate to the box that indicates that they are 
embedded but they migrate to the box indicating that they are Outlined.


When buy a font what should I look for to ensure that the font will 
allow itself to be embedded?

Can people recommend font sources?
