    Lines when exporting to PDF (in print)

    BennyBST

      Hello,

       

      I have an indesign document with several transparent layers (light grey layers).

      They all show fine on screen, and print perfect here. But when sending it to the printshop I ran into some white hairlines.

       

      When exporting to PDF X/1a I get loads (transparency flattened), when exporting to PDF X/4 I do get a slight edge (in white) where the gradient transparency ends.

       

      I do believe this issue is at the printer end, but 'yes we use PDF' was the only input I got from them.

      Again, they print just fine on my home printer, but don't with the 'pro' printing company my company uses :s

       

      Any advice, besides exporting to tiffs on those pages?

       

      Thanks!
