This old cook’s saying means that you won’t know how a recipe turned out until you taste it. However, in our business a “proof” lets you see how your card will look before we print it. It adds a little cost and time to the order, but it can provide immense savings in the long run, especially if you’re requesting custom colors for a logo, special imprinting or other custom touches. A proof ensures the card will look like you imagined it would. And if something needs to be changed, it’s easy to do at this stage.
How Do I Request a Proof?
- Select “yes” in Step 4 of your order process. This will generate an electronic proof in a PDF format that will be emailed to you. There is a service charge of $15, but if you change your layout after receiving your proof, you will not have any additional charges.
Will You Send a Proof Before I Order?
- The company will send you a “pre-proof” if you request it. A pre-proof is a mock-up that allows you to get an idea of what your card layout will look like when finalized. It’s only used on standard orders. You select the card number, the verse, ink color, font, and your text and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an especially good idea if you are worried about the end result.
If you have other questions about proofs, email email@example.com or call us at 866-388-0137 and we’ll be happy to help you.
