Default Pitfalls of Acrobrat & EPS files...'-}}

Brian Lawler posted his recent printing travails on the Colorsync Users list with the full story on his blog and I thought people might find it interesting. Here's a tidbit:

"The cover was set-up as an eight-page work-and-turn on a stock that is heavier than the body of the Visitors Guide, so that was run first. The cover, and the three pages of advertising that accompany it, have very little text that prints in black only, so we did not notice that the black text was printing in CMYK (and it doesn’t harm the job, as it was printed in perfect register). But, when the first form of the interior pages (8-pages sheetwise) went on-press, the pressman noticed immediately that small text that should have been 100% black – only – was printing as a combination of CMYK in various percentages (see the Acrobat palettes, below). So he stopped the press."


PS: Take a page from Robin's book when titling this thread...'-}}
