Please use the PDFX1a joboptions that are installed with Acrobat Proffessional as standard, optionally editing it to take account of actual target process by specifying color profile.
UnitedPress printing group are targeting ISO 12647-2 in printing processes and have decided to support standard color profiles.
ISOcoated v2 - sheetfed gloss coated
ISOcoated v2 300 - sheetfed silk coated and heatset (web) coated
ISOwebcoated - heatset (web) on LWC paper
SCpaper - heatset (web) on SC (supercalandered) paper
Uncoated - sheetfed on uncoated paper
UncoatedYellow - sheetfed on uncoated slightly yellowish paper
Uncoated profiles from colormanagement.org were chosen due to lower total ink amount. For printing on coated paper we prefer profiles generated from FOGRA39 dataset that keep total ink amount at the level fit for particular paper, e.g max 300% for heatset and also silk paper on sheetfed.
For Munken, Amber and Arctic papers please download the ICC profiles provided by Arctic Paper.
For background and discussion of standardisation please visit printingacrossborders.org and join the mailinglist.
