That would be a good idea.

I have discovered by painful experience, for example, that lulu (which of
course is a printer of PDFs) is more likely to get it right if one uses the
"Screen/Web" selection.


PS Somewhat OT, I have no idea about other print shops, but lulu is a royal
pain when it comes to using Scribus files and getting them to look right. I
don't know precisely where the fault lies (although I'm about 90% sure it's
lulu), but it's definitely non-trivial to get complex book covers to print
exactly the way one wants. (It's easy to get them to display right, which
is why I am fairly sure that the problem is with lulu's printing set-up.)
