I think I am using 'Evince' though it is actually called 'Document Viewer' in Gnome 3 which is what I have GuixSD configured to run. I my case, there is no problem viewing the document from the screen, the fonts appear ok there on every document I have opened. It is only when I try to print out something on paper that text does not appear in the hard copy. Also for comparison with your problem, I see the "document properties" -> "Fonts" window says 'all fonts are either standard or embedded' then it presents a very long list of fonts in the document. It does not say anything about substitution unless I am misreading it. Maybe your problem is somewhat different, though they both relate to the fonts in some way.

I can also print a pdf document from within the icecat browser, and it
works good. Anyone know why evince would behave this way when printing
hard copy of text from a pdf?  I read that the gnome settings key
'override-restrictions' for org.gnome.Evince schema should be set to
'true' and that is what I currently have by default.

I just noticed this recently on my machine too.  Evince does not print
nor display most (all?) of the nonembedded fonts in several documents
I've opened.  The "document properties" -> "Fonts" window says that
GuixSD system fonts are being substituted, e.g. the Liberation fonts,
but they are not displayed.

No solution, just saying it's not just you,
