Plotting Tips


  • Flatten layers and transparencies whenever possible.
  • Keep resolution lower on large prints. 150 is fine most of the time.
  • When exporting a PDF, uncheck the box that says "Preserve Illustrator [or InDesign] editing capabilities.
  • If you are having problems with vector objects, you may want to rasterize the entire file in Photoshop, then resave as PDF.
