This option is applicable when Design File is provided by client.

Soft & Hard Proofs 
A soft proof is sent to the client's email address in PDF format. The soft proof will be completed within 8 to 12 business hours once the print ready files have been uploaded to the order. The client can view it on screen or download and print. The soft proof represents only the design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement; it is not meant for reviewing color accuracy or density. cannot guarantee color quality unless a hard proof is ordered. 

A hard proof is a full color, one-sided and untrimmed inkjet proof calibrated to our presses and printed on standard semi-gloss proofing paper. Hard proofs are meant to proof color ONLY. We do not run "press proofs" as they are too costly and wasteful to be justified and against green printing standards. If you need to see printing on an actual paper stock, we recommend that you order samples.

Hard proofs will be mailed overnight to the account address, unless otherwise stated in the order notes, within one business day of receiving print ready files to the order. Approved, signed with company stamp, hard proofs must be returned to office to initiate production of your print job. If your order is color critical, strongly suggests you purchase a hard proof.

When a proof is ready, the client will be notified by e-mail. Any changes to orders must be in writing. will not proceed with verbal corrections or approvals.
