I have recently started designing brochures for my company. I completed 4. I am quite new as a designer.
all 4 printed well, had no problems.
this last one, the printer gave the foll:
1. The is overprint issues on the pdf files.
2. Some pages the fonts are not embedded.
3. There is spot colours in the job.
it is 24 pages
I did not change my setting at all as from my previous brochures. So I am completely lost in how to solve it and not for it to happen again.
We used the same printer for all the brochures.
Even the flyers I recently did, saying the same problems. Am using the same printer
I really need help as my job counts on successful brochures
It means what it says
a) you used a font that does not allow embedding in PDFs
b) you used spot colors (Pantone et al) without converting them to process CMYK
c) you didn't check the overprint/ trapping
Most of that no doubt could easily be checked using the prepress toolset in Acrobat on your end as well. As for whjat the specific fixes are, nobody can tell based on your vague info. We would have to see screenshots or the resulting product, know what fonts you used, require system info...
