The majority of Xerox

digital presses have the Adobe

PDF Print 
Engine

(APPE) enabled and therefore it is not recommended that 
you print directly but rather Export and send a PDF/x-4 for printing. As 
mentioned previously in this document, the process of printing converts 
the document to PostScript

, which will flatten any objects containing live 
transparency.
For older classes of digital presses that do not have APPE, you may use the 
following guidelines for print settings.
General
Use either the printer’s (for example, iGen4
