CHECKING PROOFS

The Graphic Designer Or Printer Will Ask You To Check All Proofs Throughout The Design Process, And The Final Responsibility Will Lie With The Client Once It Is Approved. With This In Mind It Is Often Useful To Get Someone To Proof Read It; Fresh Eyes Can Spot Fresh Mistakes!

WHAT SHOULD YOU KEEP YOUR EYE OUT FOR?

• Are there any spelling errors?

• Check all contact details such as names, addresses, and phone numbers.

• Confirm any dates or prices.

• Email proofs (or electronic proofs) would normally involve a PDF or JPEG being sent by email for you to check.

Here is some advice to take into account:

APPROVING ARTWORK

Approved – No Changes
If you are happy with the artwork, reply confirming you wish to proceed and attach the correct PDF.

Approved – Subject To Amendments
Reply confirming you wish to proceed and list the changes clearly and unambiguously.

Changes / Another Proof Needed
Reply listing the changes and request another proof. Changes may incur additional artwork charges.
