Proofs Require Customer Approval
Before actual production, a PDF proof of your artwork will be e-mailed to you for careful review. Customer approval is required before production may begin. Approval is required for two primary reasons: This allows you to verify that the file(s) we receive are complete, and that no data or elements have been lost during electronic transmission or the interpretation of the customer file by our software; it also gives you the opportunity to verify that the design you have supplied is correct, and make any necessary changes before production begins. Artwork approval is especially important in cases where a part undergoes numerous revisions.
Please be aware that while we make every effort to create the artwork exactly to your requirements, it is your responsibility to verify we have accurately interpreted your design. Also, the due date for your approval is critical to maintaining your project’s production schedule.
Please convert all fonts to paths in your artwork. Alternatively, you may include any associated font files along with your graphic file. If we do not receive fonts with your submission we cannot guarantee that files opened on our systems will match those from your network.
