[groff] Groff and poor font rendering

I'm trying to decide if my system isn't correctly configured for clear
readable fonts or if it might be an artifact of groff, and more broadly,
linux itself.
I seem to have no problem printing clear readable fonts with my printer
when the PDF file is generated by, for example, an ebay shipping label.
However, any pdf file that I create with say, pdfmom -P-e >
new.pdf results in a decent page, but still clearly pixelated, and
certainly not as sharp as more conventional google doc files, etc.

The thing is I am not a wizard at linux in general, although I am using a
very out-of-the-norm distro: Void Linux, and the fact that I am using groff
and vim means that I am not a complete idiot.

Can somebody explain if this is a groff issue, or my own setup that might
be the problem. I know my question is very broad, but I'm not really
looking for a solution, just a general answer to the question of groff's
pdf quality. If groff pdf's should be clear as a google doc it is probably
an issue with my own setup.
