    HELP!!! My settings are wrong> need to send for printing

    kajalmg1 Level 1

      Hi

       

      I am doing brochure's for my company. I am from South Africa.

      I use Illustrator for the brochure, Layout and Text.

       

      Last month the printer had problems with printing the brochure. I discovered my settings are wrong.

       

      This was the settings:

      Colour Setting

      Settings:     Custom

      WorkingSpace

      RGB:               sRGB IEC61966-2. 1

      CMYK:            U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2

      Color Management Policies:

      RGB:               Off

      CMYK:             Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles)

       

      Profile Mismatches:  Ask When Opening (ticked)

                                     Ask When Pasting ( Not Ticked)

      Missing profiles:       Ask When Opening (Ticked)

       

      Then I did research On Adobe Community Help and changed it to the below but its wrong too

       

       

      Colour Setting


      Settings:     Europe Prepress 3

      WorkingSpace

      RGB:               Adobe RGB (1998)

      CMYK:            Coated FOGRA39 (ISO 12647-2:2004)

      Color Management Policies:

      RGB:               Preserve Embedded Profiles

      CMYK:             Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles)

       

      Profile Mismatches:  Ask When Opening (ticked)

                                     Ask When Pasting (Ticked)

      Missing profiles:       Ask When Opening (Ticked)


       

      Can someone help me to set it right according to RSA printers settings, something like a default setting.

       

      Last Month the printer said the below:

      - fonts are not embedded.

      - black is not on overprint and is 4 colour black

       

      I never had this problem before, so I have no idea what went wrong all of a sudden.

      Now when I open my prevoius work on Illustrator or Photoshop, a small window pops up saying work is not according to this settings, etc.

      Please help. Im desperate.

       

      I need to start my new brochure tomorrow

       

      Thank you in advance
