Our HP laserjet 1022n works fine on everything except whenever it is asked to print a document with some sizes of calibri type font, instead of printing normally, it spews out gibberish (things like &"*#$-#"-% instead of the word "maintenance") I assume this is because calibri is a Clear-Type font, however, since calibri is now the default font of Word and excel, this has become a large issue.

First I updated the drivers that were in place, which were HP's universal drivers; still the same problem. Next I decided to try the printer's own drivers - Big mistake, these drivers ended up crashing our print spool service. So now I am wondering if anyone using this same printer still has any methods of getting this printer to understand calibri under windows server 2003.

When you print, go to File, Print, Properties. Pick "Advanced" tab, set "Send TrueType as bitmaps" Enabled. That usually fixes font problems

Nice, I'll remember that one! – SpacemanSpiff Nov 10 '12 at 14:40

As a temporary fix I am running HP LaserJet 5Si drivers, substituting the Calibri font with Times New Roman, this works for now, but the text is slightly warped (spaces in between characters). I would still welcome any other work-arounds or solutions to this.
