To make a correct PDF file - it is better first print POSTSCRIPT file, from which turn it to PDF with Adobe Acrobat Distiller, setup (JOB Option). Before distillation setup (Press quality), after it is advisable to mark up:

  1. In menu Images switch off Downsample, for all 3 types of images: Color, Grayscale, Monochrome.
  2. In menu Fonts switch off “Subset embedded fonts when percent of characters used is less than…”.
  3. In menu Color - Color Management Polices change to Leave color Unchanged.

After save settings and use with PS file distillation.

If PDF is made with export method, there is a possibility of incorrect separation of colors. To avoid it, it’s preferable to change settings as written before.

We don’t take Separated PDF files and don’t print them.
