There can be two reasons: you are producing DVI and your boss is  
producing PDF *and* has CM-Super integrated/activated. So the  
PostScript fonts are used instead of the original Computer Modern PK

It's not likely. The CM-Super PostScript fonts exist for so long  
unchanged ...

But it can be worth to test the printer driver with already bit- 
mapped fonts in the PS or PDF files! Tests could also be done with  
Latin Modern (\usepackage{lmodern}) or Times (either \usepackage 
{times,txfonts} for text and math or \usepackage{times,mathptmx} – I  
don't remember which of them is up-to-date). Different results with  
Times could be achieved by switching on and off the option not to  
download the 14 base PostScript fonts.
