Printed Proofs


We offer a free online PDF proof for every print order. If you would like to review a printed sample before moving ahead with the production of a full order, we can provide this service for most products as a printed proof. 

Printed proofs are produced digitally and are available for an additional cost. If you are interested to place an order for this, please submit a Custom Print Quote form to receive a quote from our Estimations team. If you have an existing order, contact Customer Service at 1.888.667.0067 and have your order number ready. We can help you process payment over the phone.

Please consider the following information before proceeding with a printed proof:

Colour Accuracy 
Printed proofs are not colour accurate due to uncontrollable variations between each print run. They are only ideal for reviewing layout, object size and text legibility. Therefore, expect a minimal colour shift between the printed proof and finished product as we cannot guarantee 100% colour matching.

It is the responsibility of the customer to contact us of an order corresponding to a printed proof, following the placement of a Digital Output order. Note that order details (such as stock and coating) will need to match the printed proof in order for us to produce a close match.

Printed proofs will not be printed double-sided, trimmed to size (the crop marks or dieline will be visible) or colour accurate. Several coatings are available for an additional cost.

Additional Cost 
Standard printed proofs range between $15 to $25 CAD depending on the product (plus shipping and taxes as applicable). Printed proofs for speciality orders will have higher costs due to setup fees and materials. Printed proofs are not available for all order types.

Premium Offset Orders 
All printed proofs are printed via Digital Output.

If you order a Premium Offset product, the printed proof may not serve as a close representation to the finished product as the two printing processes are different. A printed proof (or single print) is not available through our Premium Offset services and we do not offer press-checks.
