- Did you set the software producing the PDF graphics so that the font 
used (except perhaps the classical LaserWriter 35: Times, Helvetica, 
Courier, Zapf Dingbats etc.) are included within the PDF graphic file?

- Did you try visualizing and printing the PDF file produced by pdfTeX 
using Acrobat Reader instead of the previewer built-in within TeXShop 
(assuming you're using TeXShop)? This previewer, more or less a subset 
of Apple's Preview.app, inherits bugs from the Quartz graphic engine 
included in OS X.

- Did you try opening both PDF files (the graphic file and the pdfTeX 
file) in Acrobat Reader, and see the list of included fonts it returns 
(using Document Properties/Fonts)?
