PROOFING IS THE ALL-IMPORTANT PROCESS OF CHECKING THE CONTENT AND COLOUR OF YOUR JOB BEFORE GOING TO THE PRESS.
PROOFS SHOULD BE VIEWED AS IF THEY ARE THE FINISHED PRINTED PRODUCT, ONCE THE JOB REACHES THE PRESS AND THEN MISTAKES ARE SPOTTED THE PRACTICE OF CORRECTING THESE CAN BE AN EXPENSIVE PROCESS.
WE OFFER THREE PROOFING OPTIONS:
• Digital Mock Up Proofing – a cost effective proofing option for content and layout, this is a digitally produced proof which is formed to resemble the look and feel of your final printed product. This proofing method will provide you with an indication of colour, but is not intended as a colour accurate proof.
• PDF Proofing – ideal proofing method for checking final corrections prior to going to print.
• Hi Resolution Proofing – our hi res proofs are flat sheet imposed proofs which are run to ISO standard, we recommend this method of proofing when colour is critical. As an alternative to fully imposed high resolution proofs of your job, a scatter proof of some selected pages only may provide a cost effective alternative.
It should be noted for all digital proofing process that all colours are created from CMYK which can make it difficult to obtain an exact proofing match for a PMS colour.
