About Proof

A “proof” is a preview of your press-ready file, allowing you to examine and confirm layout, text and content before your order goes to press.
We rely on your thorough inspection of the proof to detect and correct errors. Orders will not go to press until we receive your proof approval.
Online & hard proof options are available.

How long will my proof be ready:

Proofs are usually be finished in 2 days once the order is confirmed. The Proof completion time will be delayed if all files we received have some issues.

Approving proofs guideline:

we can not make any mass production without your approval of the proof. This is for your protecgtion as well as ours. Please take the time to thoroghly inspect the proof before you confirmed by us.

Below are some guidelines and tips for helping you finding potential errors in your file, BEFORE it goes to press:

1. Check proofs for accuracy against laser prints and mock-ups:

IF all pages included in the proof?
IF the pages in the proper order & page numbers correct?
IF all images/photos included and in proper placement?
Measure the final trim size and check folds for accuracy.

2. Check for image quality and color accuracy:

IF photos cropped correctly? IF all photos facing the proper direction?
IF photos & graphics have good contrast?
Check color placement & color consistency throughout the pages. If you have received a color accurate proof, are the colors correct?

3. Check general accuracy of fonts, bleeds, and crossovers:

IF all fonts correct?
IF the text crisp & spaced properly?
IF the margins & page alignment(s) correct?
IF any missing characters or broken type?
Verify that bleeds extend beyond the trim marks.

4. Highlight hickeys and misc. scratches:

IF there are dust spots, printing marks, or dirt marks?
