Whe i convert my illustrator file into a PDF and print it, i am always getting a colour change.
 
I have an image with a transparent background on top of another image layer, when i print the pdf you can see a box around the image even though its got a transparent background, when you view PDF on screen you can see the box it looks fine until you print it, any ideas??

When you print a PDF, it flattens the transparent image and as a default gives it a CMYK adjustment.  This causes the area encompassing the transparent image to look slightly different from the other image.  There's really no way around it.  I've been dealing with it for a very long time and nothing good has ever come of it.
