Can I request a hard-copy proof?
Yes! But here are some things to consider first.
Depending on the size/scale of your order, the cost of a hard-copy proof can often be 50% or more of the total cost of your full order.
You must be aware that adding a hard-copy proof can often double the overall turnaround time of your project.
- For example, it might take 2-3 weeks for your proof to work through our production calendar + shipping transit time.
- Then there may be design changes and additional soft proofs needed after you've reviewed the hard proof.
- Then an additional 2-3 weeks is required for your full order to work through our normal production calendar.
Due to time constraints, many clients opt for trusting our quality guaranty program over going through the long process of producing and approving a hard proof.
Lastly, please be aware that most of the time we require the client to pay an extra fee (Ex: $250) plus the delivery cost for creating and shipping the hard proof.
