GWG Hosting Webinar On Avoiding Print Problems With PDF Transparencies


Native transparency, also known as vector-based transparency, is a powerful tool that can enhance and streamline the design process. When done correctly, native transparency can add trouble-free creative flair to a design. Understanding how to properly employ transparency can avoid costly mistakes all the way down the chain of production.

The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) will host new webinar about PDF transparency on March 26, 4pm. This webinar will be presented by Andrew Bailes-Collins (Enfocus) and is intended to help designers better understand native transparency – the benefits and challenges – and the use of best practices to avoid common print problems associated with transparencies.

There are some instances, however, where transparency has caused issues on output, especially for print-based projects. In most cases, the issues that arise when printing documents with transparency can be avoided by following some basic rules and procedures. During this webinar, Bailes-Collins will explain the solutions available to ensure that designs print trouble free.

He will look at the fundamental concept of what transparency is and how it is used. Understanding the benefits of using native PDF transparency in print production design, especially when PDF/X 4 files are processed, can help to avoid issues on press.
