We prefer receiving print files in PDF format. DanagårdLiTHO provides a settings file (joboptions) that you can use to ensure that the PDF file is correctly created as a print ready PDF. You can also export your document using the settings for PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3 eller PDF/X-4. We prefer PDF/X-4, which retains gradations and transparency for the best result.
Download and install our settings file for exported PDF documents (.joboptions). Import the file into InDesign using ‘Adobe PDF base settings’. When checking your PDF in Acrobat, it might be a good idea to bring out the “Preview printout” palette (Advanced/Print Production). Click on “Output Preview” to detect any trapping errors. Acrobat also has a built-in function for checking the PDF before sending it to print (Advanced / Preflight). For further information, contact our in-house expert Matthias Wessman, tel +46 144-761 41.
