PDFX-ready

PDFX-ready is a Swiss initiative founded in 2005. The goal is to promote and facilitate the use of the PDF/X ISO Standards for the exchange of printing data.

PDFX-ready creates guidelines, instruction sheets (called recipies), application settings (colour, pdf export) and preflight profiles. The PDFX-ready specifications are based on the PDF/X-Plus specifications of the Ghent (PDF) Workgroup.

Of particular note is the 2015 updated Guidelines for creating PDF / X-4 files, which can be downloaded from the website of the Swiss initiative.
