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. All of our pricing includes  2 free online "soft" proofs, each additional proof is $10.00. When your proof is ready, we will send you an email with a low-resolution JPEG proof of your file at final trim size, down-sampled for shorter download times. 

Proof Approval is Required

We cannot send any order to press without your approval of the proof. This is for your protection as well as ours. As electronic files are transferred over the internet, they can become corrupted, fonts substituted, images swapped, etc. We don't want you to receive any surprises when you receive your final printed product, so please take the time to thoroughly inspect the proof before you give your approval. Please, don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!

*Excludes matching textures or gradients We will match the closest possible CMYK color value to your specific PMS color. 

Set-Up File Tips 

 1. Prepare your files to help ensure a correct PMS color match. Please supply a LAYERED file. Acceptable file formats are: .PDF, .EPS, or Adobe Illustrator. 

 2. To see the CMYK color values of your PMS color, you can reference the Pantone Color Bridge Coated color book. Look for “C”, meaning Coated. (e.g. 146c).
