comment PDF from InDesign looks correct but prints bounding boxes around effects and transparencies on SOME printers
There was a slight improvement turning off vivid and other effects. Mainly effect over other raster render correctly. however, effect over vector objects still exhibit the anomalies. I think my workaround will be to ensure all vector objects in the background have a raster (tiff) fill.

The anomalies shown on my example occured after I've used flattener. That was the first thing i tried. As i mentioned, it only happens on the the office printer, not the plotter. If I design the whole thing only using RGB, would that help with the effects and transparency issue?

Pretty sure they use outdated equipment at that shop. The guy mentioned he's converting the PDFs to RIP which may be the problem. I will try to provide them with a flattened PDF. @Yorik suggested turning off vivid enhancement. there is a chance that vivid is in fact turned on.

Sorry, meant to add the office printer name. It's the canon ImageRunner c5045. It's a fairly upscale unit, almost 3 times the price of the plotter... Sounds like the issue is with the printer / driver settings. What puzzles me is that the professional print shop is running into the same problems even though i see no problems with the pdf and can print it without issues on the plotter.

Thanks. It's very slow on objects with effects but it works.
