Pass4Press guidelines help you create print-ready PDFs that will keep printers happy and give you the results you expect.
They are based on using PDF/X-1a: this is a subset of the PDF family geared specifically towards printing. Pass4Press follows international guidelines on creating print-ready PDFs, specifically the work of the Ghent Workgroup (GWG). Please note that all presets are available from the Ghent PDF Workgroup.
These Guidelines are provided for general information only. They are not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of these Guidelines. Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information in these Guidelines, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the content of these Guidelines is accurate, complete or up-to-date.
