Adobe Universal PostScript Printer Driver Update

As you prepare the files that you are about to feed in the printer, you might want to turn them into a PDF file rather than bringing the default application document. This is because PDFs are universal and they are compatible with most computers as well as printing platforms.

If you deliver your file as a document that’s created by a certain application, then you’re taking chances on the print shop that should also have the same application to print from. In many cases, this is not possible and therefore, turning documents into a PDF lessens the hassle on printing.

There are two ways to create a PDF. One is ideal for your printer and your local print shop, while the other isn’t.

When you create a PDF, go to your Print Menu of the application you’re using and select a specific print driver. After setting up the specifications to print your work, select the print driver from the drop down menu. Click print to proceed and wait for a few moments. It will create a postscript PDF file and it will prompt you its save location. People would normally save these files on their desktop since it’s the most easiest place to be found. You can still save it somewhere else, probably your flash disk, and take it to your local print shop.

Most PCs are installed with Adobe print driver as a part of the entire system. However, if you notice that your computer still doesn’t have an Adobe , then all you have to do is to click on this link and download the driver.

Adobe Universal PostScript Printer Driver v4.2.6 was released on March 25, 2009 and it is free to download. This enables you to create documents from different Windows applications to any printer that has Adobe PostScript Level 2 or Adobe PostScript 3. This version of the AdobePS printer driver, however, does not support PostScript Level 1 devices or Windows NT 3.5x and may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes. Nevertheless, this software works with Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000, NT, XP or later. Therefore, if your computer system has the appropriate requirements, then it is good for install.

Once the print driver is installed on your computer, you may have to restart your computer or the application you want to print from in order for the driver appears.

If you are using fonts aside from the standard fonts, you have to bring those fonts along with the job or insert them into the PDF. If you go to the Document Settings and uncheck, “Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts.”

A quick useful tool in Adobe applications is the feature to “Create Outlines” of your text. This will work as well since you are creating fonts that should definitely work very well in the document.
