Using a google docs available font such as "Coming Soon" will print successfully using chrome's native printing dialog, but not via the system printing dialog. PCL or PS driver doesn't matter.
This issue did not happen in the versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox I had installed. When you have a custom font, it asks to open or save as a pdf. The exported PDF embeds the font, and it prints just fine. Doesn't matter if it's the PCL or PS version of the print driver.
Unfortunately, some other documents print successfully in the system dialog box, but not via Chrome's native printing dialog.
