The document that we are going to generate to pdf file is with Chinese font which is 5~20mb. And the other datas are about 70K.
We would like to know when a client generates and download a pdf, what is about the data transfer that our server takes?

Please post here a link to a font (or any resource) residing on your server and we will measure it.

Hi, here is the linkings.


but I was asking about the processing of data transfer.
Will we transfer font files to your server in every generation? and every time?

The speed seems to be ok, it takes about 5 seconds to download the 20MB font file.
The font files are not cached between PDF generations, they are transferred for each generation.

Most likely, there is some issue with the particular font file, we will take a look at the failing HTML document you linked in the other post.

Thanks for the helping:)

in this topic, I'd like to know if possibly we can do park our font files in your server to save the data transfer.
This moment, we are still looking for other solutions.

Our aim is to reach 100K pdf downloads per month.

Given the number of the expected downloads and the requirement on storing the font files on our server, the best solution would be a private API endpoint customized to your needs. Please contact us via email ( and we will provide you with further details.
