Create TCPDF PHP Fonts

10 Dec

TCPDF supports TrueTypeUnicode (UTF-8 Unicode), OpenTypeUnicode, TrueType, OpenType, Type1, CID-0 and Core (standard) fonts.

You will find font creation utility at fonts/utils of TCPDF… copy desired font to fonts/utils/svnlabs.ttf

* For TrueTypeUnicode

# cd /var/www/html/tcpdf/fonts/utils

# ttf2ufm -a -F svnlabs.ttf

# php -q makefont.php svnlabs.ttf svnlabs.ufm

* For embedded fonts to tcpdf PDF file.. copy the resulting svnlabs.php, svnlabs.z and svnlabs.ctg.z to fonts folder

Uses:

<?php

……..

$pdf->SetFont(‘svnlabs’,’I’,8);

……….

?>
