When your files arrive, we will review your file within 3 business days. If you have chosen an online proof, we will email you a link to your proof. If you have chosen a printed proof, it will take another 2-3 days for the printed proof to arrive via Priority U.S. Mail.
Printed proofs are hand-trimmed and are not bound. Proof covers are not laminated.
For each additional proof, add one week for changes or to check a new PDF file. There are charges for each additional file review or proof. See Prepress Rates.
Production time will begin when we have received your final approval on our official Proof Form.
