• Spot colors can cause the white lines to print if file is used in a 4 color workflow. All spot colors need to be converted to 4 color process.

• White lines can also appear if an image file behind objects or text that have transparency applied, including drop shadows. This tech note is based on Knowledge Base Tech Note (kb403359) from Adobe's web site.
