Technical answer….Adobe® Portable Document Format (PDF) is rapidly gaining acceptance in the global marketplace as the standard file format for electronic document distribution and printing. Think of an Adobe PDF file as a reliable “digital master”. With Adobe PDF, you can capture the original look and feel of a document, including all the fonts, images, graphics, and formatting of the original application file. Yet, unlike the original application file, Adobe PDF files are compact and platform-independent, and can be shared, viewed and printed by anyone with free Adobe Reader® software.
However, When you print your Adobe PDF files on devices equipped with true Adobe PostScript Level 2 or Adobe PostScript 3 printing technology:
- Your files will print correctly, with the highest quality and with optimal performance.
- Misprints and reprints virtually disappear because PDF files are more reliable than their PostScript counterparts.
- If you have an Adobe PostScript 3 device, you may be able to bring direct PDF printing to your workflow. With direct PDF printing, devices can receive and print PDF files without printing through an application. The device accepts a PDF file and processes it as easily as if it had received a PostScript file. This time-saving feature removes an unnecessary step and increases job productivity.
- Having a next-generation Adobe PostScript 3 printing device guarantees that you are ready for the transition to the digital workflow of the future.
