TTF to PS Type 1 Font Converter
True Type Font to Postscript Type 1 Converter

ttf2pt1 is a converter of various scalable font formats (most notably TTF) and of the bitmapped BDF format into PostScript Type 1 fonts and metrics (.pfa, .pfb, .afm). It can also be used as a hinting engine: feed it an unhinted or poorly hinted Adobe Type 1 font through the FreeType library and the font will return with freshly generated hints.
