The people at the Kinko's here had no idea what Frame is. They have a

A couple of points:

- Ask if Kinko's can use a postscript file instead.

- Kinko's isn't exactly a high-end shop. Perhaps someone is converting your files who only knows the basics of creating a .pdf, and doesn't know how to tweak them. At a slightly more upscale shop, you're more likely to be working with a more knowledgable person. You may pay a little more, but the reduced hassles may make that worthwhile.

Neither of these suggestions, of course, answers your long-term need to improve .pdf creation, but they might fix your immediate problem.
