Hi, everybody, this is my problem 😞 I have placed an eps file with logo, 100% black, and it doesn't overprint. Everything else - another logo, text - do. Here I am left with white place when I check it. Could you pls help  I would be so grateful.

Saving as PDFX4 doesn't fix the issue.

I would say saving as an Illustrator .ai file would be better.

 

But there's nothing wrong with using EPS - I use them daily for an organisation that has 100s of artworkers worldwide and use EPS every day with no issues.

 

If it was supplied to me as .eps - I open, fix the overprint issue, and resave as same file format.

I wouldn't change file format on supplied.

You need to set the overprint in the file itself.

Was it created in Illustrator?

Open the file - and select the Black text/objects and change the Overprint for fill/stroke appropriately.

The file itself need this property. If you open it in Illustrator and correct it, you should save it as PDF/X-4 and use that to avoid EPS in the future.
