The impact of PDF 2.0 on print production

In August 2017 the first new version of the Portable Document Format (PDF) since 2008 was published by the International Standards Organization.

This white paper provides a summary of the changes that will affect print production and is designed to give the industry a head start on understanding the implications for their workflows.

It provides background information on the new standard, insight into what it means for print, and recommendations around implementation planning.

The White Paper’s author, Global Graphics CTO Martin Bailey, is the primary UK expert to the ISO committees working on PDF, PDF/X and PDF/VT.
