As Morten noted, you didn't have things set to embed the fonts when 
this .pdf was made.

At screen resolution, substituting one font for another may not be too 
noticeable, but at print time, it can be, and your printer may not 
support multiple master fonts well (which is what Acrobat Reader is 
using when it can't find the real font).

If setting things to download the fonts doesn't work, you may have a 
printer w/ a buggy PS RIP (PostScript Raster Image Processor).
