What is a "proof"?A proof is a way of ensuring that we have set your type accurately, the colors are correct and that everything is positioned according to your requirements. Typically, we will produce a proof which will be sent to you online via either email, faxed to you or printed on paper which can be viewed in our store. Why do I need to look at a proof if I've already given you everything I need to have done?We employ human beings to produce your work and, last time we checked, humans are not perfect. Your approval on the final proof is assurance that you have looked over every aspect of our work and approve it as accurate. It benefits everyone if errors are caught in the proofing process rather than after the job is completed and delivered.
Do I still need to approve a proof if I bring my work in on disk or email or download?It may seem like a proof wouldn't be needed in this case but it really is. Output devices process digital information using a variety of processing languages. Your approval of the proof which we will provide assures that the output device used has correctly interpreted and processed the information you have provided.
How do I go about ordering or getting an estimate from you? Well, since you are here, we would suggest you use our online Contact Us form. Otherwise, the best way to ensure that we get all the information necessary to do an accurate quote, give us a call and talk with one of our customer service representatives.
