Font printing problem

I currently have an application that uses a font stored in the applications resource file. I can get the font to display correctly when going to the screen, but when I try printing it, it won't print correctly. Someone suggested turning off background printing, and that worked. But I would like to know if there is a way to keep background printing on and have a font not installed in the system print correctly. I know its possible because I've seen it done in a couple of programs, like ATM 4.0.

Fonts stored in Apps are normaly only bitmaps(screen font) not postscript or truetype. There for you will not get the font to print correctly.
