A proof is a one-off copy of your document for visual inspection to ensure that the layout and colors are exactly how they are intended to be.  A proof is made prior to sending the document to press for final printing.

Resolution should be set to 300 dpi.

Pictures and graphics pulled from the internet are often low resolution, typically 72 dpi or 96 dpi. Avoid these graphics, as they will appear pixilated and blocky when printed.
Also note that you should save all photos in CMYK mode, not RGB mode when possible. Images saved in RGB mode may not print properly. If you are unable to save your image in CYMK mode, please let us know.

Files should be created using the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) setting.  Black text should be 0% C 0% M 0% Y 100% K. We prefer that files be created using a vector based program such as Illustrator or In Design, but we can support many other programs. Files should be saved as PDF files set to “high quality print”. To print an image that extends to the edge of the printed sheet (bleed), the file should be set ¼” larger than the printed piece. We are happy to answer any questions, or to help you with the initial set up of your files… just ask!

In short, printers and monitors produce colors in different ways.

Monitors use the RGB (red, green, blue) color model, which usually supports a wider spectrum of colors. Printers use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color model, which can reproduce most—but not all—of the colors in the RGB color model. Depending on the equipment used, CMYK generally matches 85–90% of the colors in the RGB model.

When a color is selected from the RGB model that is out of the range of the CMYK model, the application chooses what it thinks is the closest color that will match. Programs like Adobe Photoshop will allow you to choose which color will be replaced. Others may not.

Simple jobs are often completed in less than an hour. Some jobs, however, may take several days to complete depending on their complexity and size. We always strive to provide an accurate estimate of the turnaround time for each job we do. And we’ll always work with you to find ways to complete your project when you need it.
