What is a PFB file?

A .PFB file is an Adobe PostScript Type 1 Font file.

PFB is an acronym for Printer Font Binary, and these files contain Adobe Type 1 Fonts in binary form for use on Windows PCs.

PFB files are similar to PFA files, but unlike PFA files, PFB files have been encoded in a binary file format and are encrypted. To use a PFB font file, you must have the associated PFM file stored in the same system Fonts folder as the PFB file.
