Please help masters!

Is a PDF file done in Corel cs3 okay as a final file to send to the printers for final printing?

Will quality be compromised?

Thanks!..

Hi Bum,

Wala naman problema pag Corel gamitin.

Pero syempre before creating PDFs (hopefully PDF/X) dapat yung design ay pang printing talaga. Meaning, resolution mga 300dpi, embedded ang mga fonts (or outlined), kumpleto ang bleed, tama ang color profile, etc.

Ngayon, after conversion sa PDF, compare visually kung may mga nagbago ba sa mga elements (i.e. texts, fills, gradients, etc). Print mo din sa PostScript printer to see kung lumabas nga lahat ng elements.

Finally, preflight check the PDF sa Acrobat Pro to verify kung error free nga ang PDF na ginawa.

Madami sa Pinas luma pa rin ang RIP. To avoid major issues sa printer, i-flatten ang transparencies ng artwork sa Corel or sa Acrobat Pro. I'm not a Corel expert kaya tignan mo na lang itong link about flattening sa Corel:

Hope this helps. Keep us updated.

Pwede kasing pumasa sa preflight but not on the RIP. That is why he wanted the file be compared from authoring software from pdf and ripped files (if the rip allows preview).

Corel is a good design software but it is not a good printing software.

Thanks Larry and Billy!

Well I did make comparisons and the output was delivered this afternoon. PDF as final artwork seems ok. Yes, I did hear from the operator that some RIPS are still old on some presses.


Corel did have the same output for the vector part of the design I printed as in AI...

Salamat!

cheers
