Why do I need Adobe Reader?

For many years, SmartSource.com printing relied on Java, a so-called "applet" that would allow use to securely send a coupon to your printer.  Over the years, Java has been the subject of many security vulnerabilities to users, and as a result, many web browsers now block Java.

With SmartSource's new print technology, we use Adobe PDF Security.  Most people already have Adobe Reader installed, so this makes the transition seamless. And while many programs can open PDF files, SmartSource coupons rely on security technologies unique to Adobe Reader.

You can get Adobe Reader for free here.
