In May 2020, Global Graphics released the first edition of Full Speed Ahead: How to make variable data PDF files that won’t slow your digital press. Since some things have changed in the meantime, the second edition of Full Speed Ahead: How to make variable data PDF files that won’t slow your digital press has now been published:
In December 2020, the first revision of PDF 2.0 (ISO 32000-2:2020) was published. Based on this, PDF/X-6 (ISO 15930-9:2020) and PDF/VT-3 (ISO 16612-3:2020) were published. All three new standards are important for the definition and output of variable data in digital printing and have been taken into account in the new edition of the brochure.
In addition, there were some clarifications and extensions based on feedback from readers.
