Before we print any job we will always provide a proof for you to check to make sure that all the detail is correct, text is spelt properly, with your pictures and logos in the right place.

The vast majority of our proofing is supplied electronically by Portable Document Format (PDF). It is a universal file format that preserves the fonts, images, graphics, and layout of any source document, regardless of the application used to create it. PDF files are compact and complete, can be shared, viewed and printed by anyone with free Adobe Reader® software. We use PDF to email your proofs direct to your desktop. This saves time and is the most convenient way for you to receive your proofs. If you don’t have a copy of Acrobat reader, please click here to download a free copy.

The colour on screen

Getting the colour you see on screen to look the same on paper can pose a problem.  When you look at your computer monitor, you see colours produced electronically with light rays using RGB values (red, green and blue-just like television).

When we print in colour on paper, we use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) process colours for 4-colour process printing, or we use the PMS (Pantone Matching System®) for ink colour identification.

This means you cannot rely on your colour monitor’s display for colour selection. What you see is not what you get! Colours you see on screen may be very different when printed.
