Documents should be saved in their native file formats.
All placed images should be saved as either TIFF or EPS format without
compression or jpeg encoding. Include all placed graphics on disk. Include all
fonts used in the document and in placed EPS files.
Type 1 postscript fonts are the most desirable type
of font and have two parts, a screen font and a printer font for each type
style. True Type fonts are less desirable as they may give unexpected results.
TrueType fonts consist of a single file.
Avoid applying type styles (bold or italic), instead,
choose the bold or italic version from your font menu. Convert unique graphic
fonts to outlines. (curves)
5. Hairlines Rules
Hairline rules print with different thickness according to the resolution of
the output device. When your file is RIP'ed, hairlines may appear thinner than
expected. use .25 pt. line thickness instead of hairline.
