The soft proof is the final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops and final text. Electronic proofs do not show transparency or overprint issues. Neither do they show color changes resulting from the conversion of RGB or Pantone spot colors to CMYK. Please open your proof in Adobe Reader rather than the web browser. There can be issues in viewing with browsers.
Lines on your proof: When you open a PDF proof for the first time, you may see lines on your proof. Simply making a one-time adjustment to your preferences will fix this issue. To make the adjustments, open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat (the free or professional version), click the “Preferences” menu and from there, select the “Page Display” category. In the rendering section, click Smooth Line Art and Smooth Images, then click OK. If you use a different PDF viewer, similar settings may be found under different menu categories.
We want to be sure your printed piece reflects any changes you make. You can make changes after seeing a proof and then receive another proof to confirm those changes if you would like. Starting on the fourth proof, we do charge a prorated charge of $85 per hour.
We check that your file is setup correctly. We make sure that everything looks correct (bleeds, crop marks, image resolution, etc.) before printing and allow 15 minutes per order for any adjusting that may need to be done. Please note if additional time is needed, we will notify you. We charge a prorated hourly rate of $85 if we need to work on the file beyond 15 minutes.
