I am in the midst of creating a brochure which I am wanting ot use some drop shadows on to create separation between colours.
I have noticed that in the three locations that i've used drop shadows (one is a white square shape, one is on font, and one is on a graphic with a transparent background) there is a light, almost transparent, box that is appearing upon print. This box does not show up in any way on the .pdf, but appears when printed.
Is this an issue with my printer, or am I somehow causing an error with my drop shadow settings?
More info needed about the printer. Is it Postscript?
Consider exporting to pdf and printing from Acrobat.
Printer is an HP CP4520 Series PCL6.
I have been exporting as .pdf, not optomized for web viewing, and printing from Acrobat. That doesn't seem to do the trick and i've tweaked most of the settings to see if that is causing the problem.
