“Proofing” is the final process of checking your artwork before it is sent to print. It is a very important step in the production of your order as it is the last stage to check that everything is correct before printing. For every order, you can choose one of the following proofing methods: Online PDF Proof or Run As Is.
Online PDF Proof
We recommend an Online PDF Proof for all orders. This means that our Prepress team will review the files you uploaded to your order and ensure it is print-ready. If your files are print-ready, our Prepress team will send you an Online PDF Proof to check and approve before we commence production of your order.
Run As Is
"Run As Is" is only for experienced designers who have prepared a print-ready PDF file and are 100% sure that their artwork files are ready to go directly into production. When this proofing method is selected, your order will be added into the queue for printing immediately. There are no double-checks, and no second chances. Errors that occur from incorrect file setup are the customers full responsibility and a reprint will not be covered.
If your files are not print-ready, our Prepress team may send you a File Error message. You will need to correct your files and re-upload them to your order.
