Exported fonts (for PC) dont look great on paper


I exported some of my favorite fonts (on a Mac) to Type 1 PC format so that I could use them on my Windows XP laptop.

But somehow, when I take print outs of documents using the PC fonts, the font does not quite look like the original.
The PC fonts on paper look kind of thick. On Mac they look fine and detailed.

In Mac they look great on print as well as screen.

I am using FontLab.
I did not change UPM value. It was 1000.
I exported to Type 1 format for PC from FFIL format on Mac.

Please tell me where I am going wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Were the Mac fonts TrueType?
