Access 2007

My OS is windows 7 and I have a file which has been sorted and also have created a report to be printed on a card size 6" x 9".  The address block on the report has a special font for the bar codes.
I need to take this file to a different mail house for printing.  Hope someone could please guide me on which strategy to use :
Option 1: Take the file and then run Access on their machine.  Edit the report design to make sure that the fonts are available on their pc.  How do I handle the bar code font.  Have I got to copy it on a drive and install it onto their pc first?
Option 2 : From my pc output to a pdf file and then take the file to the Vendor's printer for printing.  But am not sure how the output is going to be printed.  Any suggestions on how to handle this route.
As this is the fiirst time I am doing this, hope the Gurus can show me the best route to take. Thank u.

hi jegajothy,
- the best way is to call up the printing vendor and ask them what format do they prefer.
- alternatively you can also output to PDF. reason being most printing vendor do have adobe reader on their machine (based on my experience). however you must carefully check the formatting in PDF is the same as you desired.
- on Access, they might not have it. so not recommended.

I would think the printing company would handle barcode symbologies (barcode fonts).
They may not have Access (or your version).

So...
I'd print out to PDF and let them print from the PDF file.
