    Respect

    Print PS files from DTP software and use Adobe Distiller to makes PDF from it.

    X1+bleed

    Just it.

    We always want the PDF/X-1a.
    No problems and everything is transparent.
    Customers can make some aditional errors when creating higher PDF/X.

    Works fine! It's not the best solution, as the best solution is a PDF native workflow, but it's a low cost solution: I image all my PDF using AcrobatPro and an imposition plug-in, outputting on an Apogee 2 (better use a RIP with a good preview!!!). This solution makes good quality job with a good ratio time/cost for a small company.

    (works much better and faster than importing PDF in Quark pages and using Quark to impose and image PDF!!!)



    ... worst case scenario, using distiller and refrying those pdfs...
    Ouch... dangerous solution, needs great cares and control... as you say, only to be used in worst cases!

    smaller mostly digital shop here, and we've gone back and forth a lot on this question.

    We try to ask for 4 first. If we notice anything we ask for x1-a. Some of our favorite designers give us both. Cumbersome yes, but haven't found a better workaround.

    For standart offset printing pdf-x 1a is still the best solution

    For digital printing you can use also pdf-x3 pdf-x4 but this depend on RIP engine

    As far as I know,
    America choose PDF/X-1(All CMYK), while Europe prefer PDF/X-3(Both CMYK and RGB).
    And in future it would be PDF/X-4.
    last but not least, it depends on your RIP.

    I got old Apogee 3,5 - it's not taking PDF/X4.

    Best way for me ist to create PS and after that Distiller - Press Quality

    The best way is to understand what is PDF/X and you will not ask this question again after that.

    untouched pdf/x3 or pdf/x3 with bleed is the best way to go.

    1. What is untouched PDF/x-3 means? It is permissible to make sub-PDF/X.

    2. PDF/X-3 with bleed. If there is no bleed then it is not PDF/X compliant.

    As I said in previous post, understand what is PDF/X. Here is a link from Global Graphics http://www.globalgraphics.com/technology/pdfx/
