WHen printing a 200kb Excel spreadsheet to a Bizhub colour printer, the file size for the "print file" is 3.8mb. Am I correct in saying that the difference in size is down to:
1) print control data needing to be sent to the printer
2) The fonts (its a postscript printer) being used
3) Rasterizing an inbuilt image of a company logo

Yes, the "print size" is usually greather that the file size. The "print size" depends on the amount and type of data that is sent to the printer like special formats, images, etc. This increases because of the amount of information that the file needs to sent to the printer in order to process the correct type of fonts, for instance.
