Gelato PDF Export Preset

We generally recommend creating the files using our Gelato Print Plugin for Adobe. However, there are a few cases in which you might not be able to use the plugin, e.g. if you are using an unsupported version of the Adobe suite, or if as a designer you don't have access to a Gelato account. 

In these cases, you can use the Gelato Standard PDF Export Preset for your Adobe suite, to export your files as PDF and manually upload them to your Gelato account via the Upload Files button. 

Please use the following links to download and install the preset on your computer.

The preset includes:

  • Export to PDF/X-4
  • Output intent set to GRACoL 2006
  • All printer’s marks (no Crop marks, Bleed, no Color bar)
  • Embeds fonts
  • Generate single page preview PDF
  • Create a High-res Print Ready PDF

The preset does not fix:

  • Bleed if was not added to the document
  • Safe text area if it was not added to the document
  • RGB Photos/Images/Graphics
  • Low-Res images (below 300 dpi)
