    I recently made a 3 fold 8 x 11 inch business brochure using Pages from iWork '06. Are there any printshops in Metro Manila that accommodate this filetype? I tried exporting it both to PDF and Doc formats but there's just significant loss of detail. TIA.

    @englishrose:
    "send windows-friendly attachment" only means you don't send out those ._filename.extension files along with the document file. However, you are still sending a Pages-native file and so the receiver must be able to open Pages. Unfortunately, no version of Word can open Pages files. It would be best for you to export or print to PDFs.

    @ejvillanueva:
    I know of no print shop that uses Pages. There might be some out there.
    If the Save as PDF in the Print dialog or the Export to PDF functions of OSX and Pages aren't up to snuff, you could try using a more powerful PDF builder like Adobe's own Acrobat Pro.

    Illustrator, Photoshop & InDesign are the industry standards. If you intend to just print them out on your own desktop, Pages is good enough. But if your material/s will be submitted to a service bureau or intended for publication for mass production, use the industry standard softwares for compatibility. Almost all social printers/printshops and publications accept jobs in pdf format.

    Can't imagine if you're gonna print those for thousands of copies, it's a lot waste of time, effort and money. Desktop printing can only be recommended for less than a hundred or a few hundred copies.
