I don't know anything about these fonts though I am sure there is a  
straight answer to your question, but is there a reason that you  
cannot just embed all fonts in the document itself?  I would use:

ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dEmbedAllFonts=true $1.ps

-- after doing the standard rounds of latex, bibtex, latex, latex,  
dvips on the file.  If Corel Draw or another application is still  
unable to find the fonts in the resulting PDF, then something else  
must be going on besides missing fonts.

I have heard from others (have no personal experience in this regard)  
that applications that import PDFs created by TeX can sometimes mess  
up the formatting, tables, etc.  It is worth wondering why the press  
cannot just take a camera-ready text from you.  If they are only using  
Corel Draw to insert the title pages, logo, etc., this may not be such  
a big issue, however.
