Update: It looks like our printer needs a PostScript3 card to actually speak postscript. We’ll see if we can purchase one and fix the problem. Will keep you posted.
Thanks for the updates. I am curious to see the fix.
Solved!! for now. Our IT person found a setting in the properties of the printer that did the trick. “Raster” instead of “Vector”. We still have an issue where the PDFs saved from Photoshop print with brighter colors than the PDFs saved from Illustrator (even if I do RGB in Illustrator), so we are still investigating that.
