Hard Copy Proof Waiver


What is a Hard Copy Proof? - Hard Copy Proofing is a process of printing the print ready PDF files on paper to make sure the following issues/errors can be caught & corrected before the entire job is printed:

  • Position & Placement (for e.g. No text is getting cut, or nothing is very close to the edge of the paper)
  • Color Accuracy (for color critical job printing on our house stock we will provide ink-jet or digital printed proof based on which machine it is getting printed. If you job is printed on offset press or on special paper then you can request for a press-proof. Min. charge is $150.)
  • Pagination (e.g. - for multi-page documents, like booklets or prefect bounded book we provide a digitally printed hardcopy mockup as it is very important to see how the pages look after it has been bounded)
  • Missing art or elements due to transparency issues (sometime due to transparencies, the soft PDF proof will not catch these errors. It might look fine on the screen, but when printed the background transparency will be converted into something unpredictable. There are many reason it happens, please Google Transparency Problems to learn more). Hence it is very important to flatten to PDF before sending files.
  • Spelling & Grammatical Mistakes (Surveys and Test have shown that it is much easier to catch spelling and other mistakes when reading on paper then on screen)
  • Low Resolution images (on the screen it will look fine, but when printed they will look pixilated, due to the fact screen is 72 dpi vs. print is 300 dpi)
