I created some business cards in Adobe Photoshop with a lot of text. Problems arise when i want to print the cards from an adobe PDF-file created from the original file in Photoshop, , the characters are not sharp! . The printer needs ‘vectorial text’. How can we convert text into ‘vectorial text’?

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible? Can you provide one of the pdfs?  Photoshop Type Layers should output as regular font data in pdf (unless faux styles or Layer Styles have been applied).

Many thanks for your reaction.

Included you find the PDF-file created (by save as Photoshop PDF) from the Photoshop file and a screenshot of the file in Photoshop with the 'Layers' and the 'Paths'. The problem is that Photoshop works with Pixels and the printing office needs 'vector based' text!

The problem is that you apparently didn’t use Type Layers – how did you create the text? 

 

If the Paths repersent all the texts you can create a Shape Layer with a Vector Mask (Layer > New Fill Layer > Sold Color), that will output as vector data in pdf.
