What are my options in generating PDF/X output files?

PDF/X is used for the graphic arts and printing community, where colors must be perfectly accurate. The format places restrictions on PDF files so that PDF/X versions of those files can be transmitted reliably through a graphic arts workflow and printed with the colors and appearance that the person creating the PDF/X file is looking for. PDF/X has largely replaced the use of TIFF and other raster-based formats and EPS files in many graphics arts workflows where color is critical, such as in producing catalogs and magazines.

When generating PDF documents from PostScript files using FLIP2PDF, you can choose to create PDF/X export documents. FLIP2PDF only supports PDF/X-3 files; the PDF/X1-a option is not available.
