What PitStop Pro does
Switch is a modular software solution that integrates with existing systems and drives third party applications to speed up job processing, reduce errors, and automate repetitive tasks. An extensive array of editing tools makes it easy to do last-minute corrections, both for individual objects and globally throughout the complete PDF document.
The tools in PitStop Pro are completely production oriented and allow you to tackle those problems you actually experience in your workflows. The industry-standard preflight engine in PitStop Pro checks all aspects of your PDF files and pinpoints exactly where the problems are. To avoid this, check that there are no empty pages in the file.
This ensures that agencies do not group multiple ads in a single file, making it too easy to accidentally place an incorrect ad. Text Files should not contain black text that is smaller than 12 points and set to knock-out.
This is necessary because it is very difficult to print such text. Even the smallest alignment problem on the press can cause such text to become illegible. Check if the PDF contains white text set to overprint. Such text may be visible when the text is watched on-screen but it disappears in print. Very small text quickly becomes either illegible or difficult to print when it is colored.
GWG recommends to flag any files with text smaller or equal to 5 points 8 points for newsprint. When it is colored with 2 or more colorants, text should not be smaller than 9 points 10 points for newsprint.
Fonts All fonts should be included in the PDF file. This is done to avoid that an incorrect font is used, which could lead to text becoming illegible or part of the text disappearing.
Why preflight PDF files?
When a certain font is not available during the PDF creation, it typically gets replaced by Courier. To avoid printing a PDF with missing fonts, check that no Courier font is present in the file.
Images Images need to have a certain minimum resolution to be printed at a good quality. The required resolution depends on the type of printing. That is why the preflight process should check if all image resolutions exceed a minimum threshold value.
PitStop Pro. Print-ready PDF files. Every time.
GWG recommends rejecting files containing color and grayscale images with a resolution below ppi for newsprint and ppi for commercial offset work.
For 1-bit images anything below ppi is considered unacceptable.
Many preflight applications can already give a warning when the image resolution gets dangerously close to these minimum values. Images that have a resolution that is too high lead to bloated files that take longer to transmit or process.
For newsprint GWG sets the maximum resolution to ppi for color or grayscale images and ppi for 1-bit images. For commercial print using offset presses, the maximum resolution is set to ppi for color or greyscale images and ppi for 1-bit images.
Defining a maximum resolution is somewhat controversial: if this problem gets resolved by downsampling images, this can cause issues with special types of images such as security elements. Some users also argue that large file sizes are no longer the problem that they once were. From their point of view, the risks of downsampling exceed the advantages of limiting the file size.
By checking if white line-art is set to overprint, you avoid that such images disappear on the final output. Theoretically, it is possible to put images that use 16 bits per channel in a PDF file. This leads to bloated files that may cause rendering issues on older RIPs, without any real-world advantage in printing quality. You can even add bleed and do color-managed color conversions on an object-to-object basis - features hard to find in a fully-blown DTP application! For maximum color fidelity, pick the color engine of your choice from a range of industry standard CMS solutions.
