  1. I have run into a problem exporting a file into a format a printer is able to use. Since I'm not a professional designer, there are significant gaps in my knowledge I don't quite know how to articulate and resolve. Please refer to the uploads to help. 1. I created a business card in Affinity (pmb bizcard outside). Problem: I submitted a JPEG of the image to the printer and was told: 2. the file color was saved RGB and needed to be CMYK. I knew there would be color differences between the on screen and printed versions, so I asked the printer to adjust the color to best match the print with the rgb screen. He said he needed an EPS file to do that not a JPEG and he gave me a pantone color book for me to match the cmyk screen colors to the desired print output colors: 3 I did that (PMB bizcart outside cmyk. Ithought it looked awful on screen...like illustration creamed soup.). Once I had the new colors in place I exported the file as an EPS 4. And got this, (PBM Bizcard Outside cmyk. eps) which issues I did not know about when I passed it to the printer...who was so frustrated with it, he got mad at me. I didn't quite understand until I opened the EPS file itself in Affinity to check. What the heck happened, and how do I export into a file format that a professional on Illustrator can manipulate and use? 5. I need a fix to get my original version color corrected and printed by someone who is not just going to upload a JPEG and throw the dice. Any suggestions?
