    ISO 15930-5:2003 Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange using PDF — Part 5: Partial exchange of printing data using PDF 1.4 (PDF/X-2)

    Prepress digital data exchange using PDF is becoming more and more popular. Partial exchange of printing data using PDF 1.4 (PDF/X-2) allows for faster and smoother printing processes.

    With ISO 15930-5:2003 Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange using PDF — Part 5: Partial exchange of printing data using PDF 1.4 (PDF/X-2), graphic professionals can easily exchange print data between different applications, devices, and printers without losing any quality or accuracy.

    Furthermore, this standard ensures the security and integrity of the data while it is being transferred.

    ISO 15930-6:2003 Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange using PDF — Part 6: Complete exchange of printing data suitable for colour-managed workflows using PDF 1.4 (PDF/X-3)

    Prepress digital data exchange is essential for efficient and accurate color-managed printing. PDF is a popular format for exchanging digital prepress data, and it is supported by most major prepress software platforms.

    This article covers the complete process of exchanging digital prepress data using PDF 1.4. This process includes the exchange of printing data, fonts, images, and other types of files.

    If you are working with a customer who uses a different software platform, you will need to adapt this process accordingly. However, the basic principles remain the same.

    When exchanging digital prepress data using PDF 1.4, it is important to follow the guidelines set out in ISO 15930-6:2003. This standard specifies how to create and use PDF files for digital prepress data exchange.

    By following these guidelines, you will ensure that your data is formatted correctly and that it can be exchanged between platforms without issue.

    ISO 15930-7:2010 Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange using PDF — Part 7: Complete exchange of printing data (PDF/X-4) and partial exchange of printing data with external profile reference (PDF/X-4p) using PDF 1.6

    PDF/X-4 is a file format specification for the exchange of complete printing data between digital prepress systems and digital printing equipment. PDF/X-4p is a profile for the exchange of partial printing data with external reference profiles.

    The ISO 15930-7:2010 Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange using PDF specifies how to exchange complete printing data between digital prepress systems and digital printing equipment. PDF/X-4 supports the sharing of multiple print runs and can be used to transfer files that are larger than 4GB.

    PDF/X-4 support the sharing of multiple print runs and can be used to transfer files that are larger than 4GB.

    ISO 15930-8:2010 Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange using PDF — Part 8: Partial exchange of printing data using PDF 1.6 (PDF/X-5)
