    Colour profile and 100k problems PLEASE HELP


      Hi all,


      Having an issue with getting files print ready and it's confusing me a lot!

      I need to create a pdf which is set to CMYK ISO Coated v2 (ECI) but with a barcode which remains as 100k - not a CMYK black.


      My work path is:


      -Design artwork in PS and save as a pdf - I uncheck the embedded profile in the save as dialogue
      In the pdf settings box I set the output to convert to ISO Coated v2 (ECI) - the pdf standard is PDF/X-4:2010


      -I place this pdf into an ID template along with other logos and the barcode ( barcode is from Free Online Barcode Generator - Create Print-Ready Barcodes )

      -When I'm ready to export the pdf from ID I set the output to "No colour conversion' and 'Include all profiles'




      My printer is coming back to me telling me that the file is not ISO Coated v2 (ECI) and the barcode is made of CMYK not 100K


      Can anybody help me out here, I can't understand what is going wrong.
