Having these questions answer before you call, e-mail, or visit can drastically speed up the time it takes for to process an order. We understand you may have additional questions or may not be able to answer all of the questions outlined above so our fully trained staff will be happy to help you.
Proofs are mock ups or representations of what the sign will eventually look like before we make it. We use them to verify that colours images and other content is correct, and to make any required changes before production. These can be sent out via e-mail, picked up at the shop, or faxed. Colour sensitive jobs always require the client to come to shop to verify the correct colour. We can also make a small test print on the actual production material to get an exact representation of the job. This is usually done for large jobs only.
Proofs must be looked over very carefully because once they are approved we are NOT responsible for any overlooked changes. If a proof is approved with imperfections, re-prints or additional changes can only be made at the client’s expense.
