If your artist has used transparency layers, you can overcome some problems by converting all elements to Black or Grayscale and removing all RGB and Spot Color elements and information from your file and then flattening all transparency layers. These preflights are availabe through Acrobat Professtional®. Be sure to give your file a final look before uploading. Once they file is uploaded, they are quickly processed.
