Please supply any placed images and fonts, alternatively you can embed the images (via the sub menu in the links pallet) and outline any text within the document.
When supplying a pdf for final reproduction, please ensure it is saved in CMYK format without any image compression, as any down sampled images within the document will re-produce at a lower quality. Outline fonts if possible and make sure fonts are embedded when creating the pdf.
