EXPORT IN PDF The PDF is the best way of processing your file for print. Edit from InDesign or Illustrator with a PDF ISO PRINT EUROPE norm. Check if your bleed is correct in the document and verify if you are importing the correct pages. In case of a multiple page booklet pay attention to export in “single page” size and not as spread.The job options are available on request. CHECKING YOUR PDF In Acrobat check it with TOOLS-PRINT-Print Layout. Choose “Print simulation” and take into account potential defaults. Do check the inking percentage which shouldn’t be above 300%. Choose “Entire zone coverage” indicate 300 and see in fluorescent green and check if the elements are in that case. If certain pantones remain in PDF, the pantone ink plates will superimpose to the CMYN ink plates. It is possible to convert them in Acrobat (but it is better to make them directly in the software of creation). In the window click on “ink manager” then in the new window click on the squared pictogram near the pantone. The pictogram is replaced by the 4 colours print symbol. Click OK and then check the result. Attention: If the pantone shades are above or below the transparency elements the conversion will be bad. In this case go back to the software at creation and process the new PDF without pantone. PDF’S VALIDITY IN ACROBAT In Print-Tool choose “Preview control”. In profile choose “Pre-print” then “Offset at sheet CMYN”, or “Offset at sheet CMYN and direct shades” then click on “Analyze”. Acrobat will analyze all the information gathered in your PDF. If it comes from InDesign or Illustrator with export in iso-print-europe there shouldn’t be any problem. If the PDF is not correct Acrobat will indicate the points as “errors” or as “warning”. The usual errors are image problems (unflatten transparencies, low resolution….) or colours (incorrect profile, presence of direct shades) or PDF norms (to enter the production of printer flow). The usual warning: the ink coverage above 300, non-valid fonts or text, colour extension etc. You should also check visually if your PDF is correct:cut and bleed, colours, if all the elements are well in place.
