Proofing and Colours Matching

Electronic PDF proofs are used to check layout and wording. A PDF proof cannot be used for exact colours matching due to variations in computer monitors. If an exact colours proof is required, but not stated in the estimate, this can be estimated for separately as required. For Pantone Colours printing (Spot Colours) colours samples will be provided. For reprints of previous projects every effort will be made to match existing colours but due to variations in the print process there may be slight differences in colours.

Supplied Materials

It is assumed that all text and images supplied by the Client will be in electronic format (if unsure please check) and be of a suitable quality for the intended use. If not, an agreed fee may be charged for the conversion of the content to a usable electronic format e.g. scanning of newspaper articles, photos etc. All page content, images and information should be supplied prior to commencement of the project to avoid delays.

Proofs and Artwork

The Client is responsible for:

  • Conveying your requirements accurately, concisely and specifically to us
  • Ensuring that any artwork generated by us is suitable for your requirements
  • Thoroughly checking any proofs for errors, omission or spelling mistakes

  • Giving us complete and final approval of a proof (in written form if requested) and giving us final authority to proceed and print the work
