Try exporting directly as PDF/X-4.

Abc,
You're right, I said it was generated from ArtPro. I forgot that this file is actually generated by Distiller. My mistake that I forgot this pdf generating step. :facepalm:
I will check if I can export it to pdf file with specific settings.

We use an Epson P8000 on clear material, stable enough that the biomed clients accept it for their "QC" tool for their IFUs.
For dies and such we usually don't bother and email pdfs to vendors

We output film here, we use the Exile Liberator.
Extremely stable, dead on accurate when set correctly.
We use it of our silkscreen, dies, etc.
We output film for several of the local printers around.

I’m needing to replace our old Roland Quadra we use for printing clear film (using fast dry Aspect film).
 
Will also need to do stamping/emboss files on it occasionally so I need something stable (low distortion as it goes through the printer).
 
What is everyone using for this?

We got a few new M1 Mini's at our shop. Only downside so far has been the XMF client, and if you use it their Measure App for the colorpathsync calibration web software doesn't work on 11.0+ at all, intel or m1.

I have a PC next to me to run XMF for the time being and Fuji let me know we're the first shop to adopt the new m1 Macs. they're working on an update for XMF that should be out sometime early spring that will work on the 11.0+ MacOS.

We got the cheap m1' minis (8gb ram model) and I kid you not, it runs everything faster (InDesign, Illustrator, photoshop, acrobat with Pitstop) by a lot, over our 2017 iMac 27" with the 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 and 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 ram.

Until the XMF update, I'll be using the PC next to me like I said which sort of sucks, but hey. My old Mac is going to update our proofer/plater's station and move our FTP server to it (current FTP server is an older iMac running 10.4) when it bites the dust.

In other news, if anyone has an older Mac mini they would like to part with, I will consider buying it, if the price is acceptable. I don't care if it's the newest or not. Older iMacs or Macbooks too... within reason. I just want to have another Mac around here... but I would like to at least be able to run El Capian/Sierra.

We started with Insite 5. We were on the beta for 9.0 too and the things they removed from 8 were shocking at the time. No status of customer uploads as you had in 8.x. In 9 you know when they start uploading and when the upload finishes but no way of know the progress of the uploads by customers. Also getting to the customer account pages and the user account pages is way more mouse clicks than it was in 8.x. Customization was much more robust in 8.x also. I can't think of one single item in 9.x that is better than 8.x.

I know what you mean but to be fair the old InSite UI is terrible looking.
Kodak has made some good/needed fixes in 9.2.
Personally I like it way better than 8, but then again we were a 9 beta as well and only had used 8 for a year at most.
We were new to Prinergy and InSite as of early 2018.
