Print Science Preflight can analyze PDF files to detect serious problems that could cause poor quality printing results. Once you know that the file contains problematic elements, you can then take action to fix the problems before sending the file to press.

The most common problems that Print Science Preflight will detect are:

  • Missing fonts
  • Small font sizes
  • Low-resolution images
  • Incorrectly defined page dimensions and missing trim boxes
  • Inappropriate colorspaces for the print technology you will use to print
