Proofing Options

Flat Sheet Proof for Indigo

You will be sent a hard copy printed proof on your desired stock.

These proof represents the colour of your supplied file on either a coated or uncoated paper. However, they do not allow for variation for specialty finishes such as cellosheen, foils and spot UV’s.

Hard Proof

You will be sent a hard copy digital proof (generated from a calibrated Epson printer).

Our digital proofs are imaged using profiles certified by the International Standards Organisation (ISO). These profiles represent the colour of your supplied file on either a coated or uncoated paper. However, they do not allow for every variation in stock ink-absorbtion or stock whiteness.

The proof is a representation of the final output, printed on proofing paper, and therefore cannot be matched exactly to every variation
