PrintKEG provides a few proofing options to facilitate quality and timeliness. We are dedicated to outstanding and personal proofing techniques for all of our cheap printing products.
Proofs can affect your estimated ship date. Please read further.
No Proof (free)
If your art is the correct size and and you’re totally ready, you may not require a proof. This option is great for orders that really need to be rushed. Don’t worry, we briefly review all files for quality purposes. If we see obvious problems, we will still send you a digital proof ensuring your prints look right!
If you choose “No Proof” or “Not Required” for newsletters or booklets, there is a $20 charge since we highly recommend a physical proof due to the meticulous nature of booklet printing. We understand some customers may be in a hurry due to strict deadlines, so we continue to offer a “no proof” option.
In cases where we send a digital proof due to art issues, please read below.
Digital Proof (free)
Before printing, we’ll email you a digital proof normally within 4-6 business hours. In most cases, one day is added to the estimated ship date (or turnaround).
A digital proof may help you visualize bleed and trim areas. It is also useful in discovering errors such as missing text and images. Additional proofs are $3.95 each.
Special note: Digital proofs for Newsletters / Booklets may take 24 to 48 hours for us to complete and send.
Standard & Next Day Mail Proof ($25 -$50)
Sometimes its nice to see a physical proof before printing so we’ll send a physical proof for your approval which only adds one or two days to your estimated ship date. Standard proofs are sent UPS Ground and Next Day proofs are sent UPS Next Day Air. Your estimated ship date will change based on when we receive approval to move forward. Newsletter/Booklet proofs may take 1-3 business days for setup, but we try to send them out as fast as we can.
We strive to send out physical proofs quickly, and we ensure shipping takes three days or less.
1. A PDF proof is a “soft proof”. It is intended to show you the size, text, and placement of your file. Because of the variances of monitor settings and differences in equipment, it is not necessarily an exact representation of color. If your job is color critical, we suggest you request a “Standard & Next Day Mail Proof” option so you can actually see the product.
2. Please check your email (PrintKEG ID) often. You may be sent a proof to be authorized. If proof is not approved promptly, your order will most likely be delayed.
