Problems printing transparencies from pdf files at printing company

Question

When we print pdfs with transparent layers in our office, we do not have any problems. However printing them at the printers on a large scale printer seems to have many problems with the polygons and particularly with transparencies. The pdfs look fine on the screen but only prints part of the image (transparent objects do not print at all).

Exporting the pdfs as quartz images seems to help sometimes, but not always.

I don't know if printing directly from Vectorworks would be better - it is always easier to send the pdfs and control the output.

Any thoughts?

Imac OS 10.4.11 and Leopard using VW 12.5.3

Are you sending the PDFs to a print bureau to print?

If so, what software are they using to print the file?
