You can exercise full control over prepress settings and save the print job in a .PRN or .PS file. This file is sent directly to an output device by the service bureau.
The service bureau can often verify or fix a .PRN or .PS file using a Raster Image Processor (RIP), or Adobe Distiller, depending on the software. Be sure to review and confirm all settings with them to avoid unnecessary delays in your printing job.
Include a sheet with all the prepress settings that you have specified. You can create this sheet automatically by enabling the Print Job Information Sheet check box in the Print dialog box or the service bureau may have an order form that outlines all the essential prepress settings.
