Do you by chance have your composition set to draft 3d mode and your render settings set to render everything at best quality?
The key would be to make sure your camera is pulling focus to your text when you want it to be sharp. Or, if you don't care to maintain the realism of the camera DOF, you can have your render settings set to render it at draft quality.

My comp is set to draft 3D and I set the render setting to best quality but I'm still getting blurry text. I'm not understanding what's happening here it preview fine but won't render.

Thanks for your reponse.

Right. Your comp is set to draft 3d which means it won't show depth of field on AE layers. Since Particular is an effect (and a third-party one at that), it is not effected by the draft 3d switch at all. So you'll get nice blurred particles, but your text will always be crisp, no matter where it is. However, when you render, you've told it to render at full quality, not draft. Therefore, in your final render, your text is effected by the depth of field.

You have two options (as I mentioned in my first post):
1. Render in draft 3d (not the best option)
2. Switch off draft 3d in your comp and change the camera's focus distance so that your text is in focus. (best option) You can change it back to draft 3d to work on the animation/timing, etc. but when you're trying to work with the focus (or lights and shadows), you'll want to switch draft 3d off. That's why the switch is there.

Hey Mike, If u get a chance watch Andrew Kramer tutorial # 54 Advance camera tips..That's is what I'm trying to do. I tried rendering without 3d draft and with it it but I'm still getting the dof on the text. If I pull focus on the text I lose the dof on the background.

Thanks for all your help.

I'm glad you figured it out. Others may have a similar issue, so it would be nice if you could share what you did so others can follow you when they search the forum for answers later.

Thanks Again.
