PDF (Portable Document Format)


Portable Document Format, commonly known as PDF, is a file format used to present and exchange documents reliably, independent of software, hardware, or operating systems.

It's often used in printing due to its ability to preserve the fonts, images, graphics, and layout of any source document, ensuring it will appear the same on any device.

For print businesses, it provides a convenient and reliable way to receive print-ready files from clients.
