The Importance of Proofing
When you spend time and money creating a printed item, you want it to be just right, don’t you? Well, so do we, and proofing is a key activity in our effort to produce your printing exactly how you want it.
If Cedar Printing is designing your piece, we’ll show you a proof before we start printing. If you find any errors or would like to make changes, we’ll be happy to make the corrections or changes and show you another proof. (Please keep in mind that while errors on our part are not chargeable, any changes you request will incur additional fees.)
If you supply a print-ready file, we will not usually show you a proof, since it would be the same as your submitted file. However, we may bring to your attention any concerns we have about how your file will print or suggestions for improvements. If you request that we make changes to your file, we will want to show you a proof to ensure that everything is now correct.
Once you approve a proof, you take responsibility for any errors that you may discover later, even if we made them. By approving the proof you are telling us that we did the work correctly. Therefore, if a reprint is required due to errors not caught in proofing, we will have to charge accordingly. The moral of this story is this: please proof carefully!
