    Why isn't gradient transparency printing right?

    Wask15 Community Member

      When printing a vector illustration in PDF format, my gradients that fade to 0% over a surface aren't coming out right. The gradient appears like a box with a hard edge, rather than fading away. It looks like this when viewing the file Screen Shot 2013-03-25 at 4.15.49 PM.png , but when printed I am getting this .photo-3.JPG (don't mind the color, it is a bad quality photo)

       

      I am using an HP z5200 postscript printer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
