Most likely, the answer would have been to outline the fonts. I think
this also illustrates the importance of being involved in the middle of
the process. A good thing to do here would have been to request to see a
proof before the final printing. Alternatively, you might have given
them a printout from your computer showing how you expected the font and
layout to appear. This way you would be able after the fact to say,
"Look at the difference between what I expected this to look like and
what you gave me."
