The easiest way to separate your multipage PDF into singular pages, is using Adobe Acrobat. Simply open the PDF, and follow these steps.
1. Click "Document>Split Document" from the top menu bar.
2. Select to split the document by number of pages, and enter the max number of pages as 1
3. Click OK
4. Now the single page PDFs should be saved in the same folder as the original on your PC.
If you do not have a copy of Adobe Acrobat, you may find some useful information in the Adobe Forums.

3. Select "Adobe PDF" as the file format
4. The "Adobe PDF Preset" menu will then pop-up - select [PDF/X-1a:2001] from the dropdown
5. Click "Save PDF"

You can embed bitmap elements in your PDF. If they are small images (less than 150dpi) then they could come out looking pixelated. To avoid this, you can simply remove these images from the source file (Illustrator or Photoshop) and then replace with a larger version.
For more information about removing/replacing low resolution images in your PDF, please see the B4Print.Com forums.
The most efficient way to remove a spot colour is to open the file in Illustrator and select the pantone/spot colour. Then simply convert the colour (by clicking the small symbol underneath the colour picker).
If you do not have access to the original file, you could try simply preflighting the file, using the preset PDF/x-1a. Click here to find how.

If your PDF is too big, then you'll need to reduce it's size, so that we can print your order without blowing up Big MOO, and nobody wants that. We recommend making your PDF no larger than A4/US Letter size, at 300dpi.
