Possibly a PHP.ini configuration error. Have you tried checking your php INI extensions? such as the and do you have error reporting enabled? This can also provide a better understanding as to why it isn't working. Another note, your hosting provider could also have some sort of restriction enabled. Do you think that may also be a cause?

No it is not an cause. It is an VPS. Hosting provider doesn't care about what i host on it. Only disallowed thing is proxy. Anyway, problem is solved few minutes after posting. I needed to use full path, no relative path for font file. I commented out code for sending image header and executed again. Then i saw an PHP error - problems with finding font file. – xZero Dec 23 '12 at 13:25
