No, the printer does Postscript 3 natively (which is quite surprising
for a 550? printer). I'll mail them and ask for the profile they use.
(They have a custom Linux driver which installs a complete printing
system, but fortunately comes with PPDs which work perfectly with CUPS,
so I cannot print via PCL but Postscript works well)

Oh well, they talked about Distiller settings etc when I asked about the
profile to use for export. Looking at the settings they sent me, I
figured that they use the U.S. Web coated SWOP or so profile (quite
uncommon in Europe AFAIK), so I created my PDFs again and am now waiting
for the results.

Bye, Tino.
