Proof Approval & Proof Options

 

Proof Approval

After your files have been received and reviewed by our preflight department we will send an e-proof (electronic proof) within 1-2 business days for your review and approval. To insure that your files are print-ready please review the instructions in our Artwork Guidelines .

 

PRODUCTION LEAD TIMES DO NOT BEGIN UNTIL PROOF(S) HAVE BEEN APPROVED. Timely proof approval is critical.

 

E-proofs

  • E-proofs (PDFs) are provided at no charge for reviewing layout and content. E-proofs are not color correct and should not be used for confirmation of final quality. E-proofs are intentionally low-res and are not print-ready files. 

  • Template lines do not print on final output.

  • Specified PMS color matches will be matched to the best possible interpretation for the specific output device. Catalogs, printed proofs, etc. can also be used for color matching.

  • It is the client’s responsibility to check e-proofs for spelling and grammatical errors. Client-approved graphics that contain errors will not be reprinted free of charge.

  • Lead times are based on business days (excluding weekends and holidays) and do not include shipping transit time.

 

Printed Proof Option

  • If specific color matching is critical, we strongly recommend ordering a printed proof prior to printing. Although ordering printed proofs adds cost and production time, it is the ONLY WAY to ensure that color output will meet your satisfaction.

  • If color is unsatisfactory on jobs without a printed proof, prints can be redone at additional cost.

  • If you would like to order a printed proof, please add it to your shopping cart as you complete your order. Price includes overnight shipping.

  • Please note that printed proofs ADD TWO (2) BUSINESS DAYS to production lead time.
