Details about Proofs:

A PDF proof will be emailed the same business day for orders submitted before 2:00 PM EST and the next business day for orders submitted after 2:00 PM.
A PDF proof is free. You will receive an email with a link to your PDF proof.

We can also provide a hard copy proof, which is printed and bound using the exact specifications for your order (same paper, binding, options, etc.). Hard copy proofs sent via ground UPS are $25 and $50 if sent via overnight UPS. You must first approve a PDF proof before we print the hard copy proof. Hard copy proofs are shipped the day after you approve the PDF proof. Please keep in mind that a hard copy proof, even if sent via UPS overnight service, will typically add 3 to 5 business days to your printing production time.

We highly recommend hard copy proofs if you have concerns about your files, such as whether your graphics are high resolution or whether colors will print correctly. If you would like to discuss whether a hard copy proof makes sense in your situation, please feel free to call us at 1-800-338-4329, email us at [email protected], or chat online.
