duplicate spot colors in indesign
Posted on 2010-09-20
Two questions - I am using Adobe InDesign CS5 (for the PC)
1) I fixed a duplicate spot color problem by going to the swatches panel then deleted all unused swatches. Now, when I package my job for print I no longer get that error. Is this a recommend solution for issues like this or can it cause printer issues when it goes out to print?
2) I'm also exporting this file via File > Export > Adobe PDF (then I use the PDF x/1a:2001 format). I didn't flatten the file, but the only fonts I used were Arial Regular - which I would think virtually everyone has. More than likely this file will be printed at Office Max, Depot, Staples, etc. All graphics are eps files. Should this theoretically give decent enough quality? I'm told by the customer that our logo looks jagged. Yet, when I took this to Office Max (after placing the .eps file), and printed a test copy, I do NOT get jagged edges. My thought is he must have printed this on an office machine.
