The first email proofs are free (PDF format) and are emailed to you within 24 hours (normally same day) of receiving your material and payment. You must check them carefully and reply to the email with your approval to proceed to press.

These proofs are intended as a final check to ensure that no glitches or mis-reads have crept in during the file transfer and document processing.

DEADLINE: A proof approval email must be received by 4.00pm during normal office hours for the order to be processed that working day. A proof approved later than 4.00pm will be processed the following working day.

AMENDMENTS AREN'T FREE: if something goes wrong when we process your documents then, of course, we will put it right - but if you make alterations to your original document there will be a charge of £10 for each subsequent proof. Please proof read your documents BEFORE you send them to us.

·         Is the colour accurate? Yes - but how colours are displayed depends on the colour calibration of your monitor. Click here for more info. We recommend that you always print out a hard copy of your work prior to sending it to us. Desktop colour printers, whilest not up to professional standards, give a much closer colour match than an uncalibrated RGB computer monitor.

·         Can I get a 'hard-copy' colour proof? Yes but only for full colour printing. High resolution hard-copy proofs are available at extra cost + P&P - they're the same price as our Photographic prints. Click here for current prices and sizes. Hard-copy proofs are inkjet prints calibrated to the CMYK Euroscale Litho Printing standard. Whilest not quite as sharp as the final product the colour balance is accurate (+/- 5% colour tolerance). They're printed onto matt polypropylene material for dimensional stability and are not available for metallic inks or spot colours.

TIP: If colour balance is vital why not print a postcard as a colour test? You can then see the print quality and colour balance for yourself and you can build up an entire library of colour cards for future reference that you know are 100% accurate. This is what professional print designers do.
