The print sector in the form of printed catalogues, price lists or postal mailing campaigns, continues to be an important pillar and these instruments are in demand for individualized addressing (e.g. special advertising campaigns). Therefore, the question arises whether it is possible to apply the same individualization techniques in both the digital and the print sector.
One of the questions that have been discussed at the recent PDF Days was whether a PDF can comply to more than just one ISO standard. Some of the attendees seem to have been confused by the amount of different standards. I guess it is a legitimate question why we have so many different standards and how difficult it would be to create a PDF that complies with more than just one of them. So, I wrote this blog.
