    Print From InDesign Prints Fine, But Print After Exporting to PDF Prints Black as Gray, Lower Image Quality

      Hi All,

       

      I have a print issue going on with a document I am currently trying to print.  When exporting to PDF (High Quality Print or Press Quality Setting, along with trying just about any color output possible), and then printing, my document's blacks go to gray and the images look washed out.  This does not happen if I print straight from InDesign to my printer.  I have tried changing the transparency blend space, changing document color profiles, and matching export options to the options used when printing straight from ID, all with no success; the document is still printed poorly when exporting to pdf first.  Any ideas why this may be happening when exporting or printing to pdf but not when printing straight from ID?  Thanks in advance for any and all help!
