The Process
...............................................................................................................................................................................

Pre-production

Depending on the format in which we receive your artwork, we can have a completed proof ready in 1-3 business days. For example, if the files that are sent in include low resolution images, missing links or fonts, setup will likely require more time.
Please have artfiles ready for pre-press to ensure a faster turnaround time.

Proofing

You might find yourself going through more than one proof.  Typically, each cycle of color-correcting or art revision can add 1-2 business days to the process.

Please keep in mind a match-print is required to be approved for all 4 color process jobs to check color. This is why it is essential that we recieve the approved artwork and color match-print before we go to press. The matchprint is what our press technicians use to match the color on press.

Production

Before going to production we must have final proof approved and order confirmation signed, 4 Color Process orders need a matchprint approved as well.

Once we recieved your signed art proof and order confirmation, we will be able to go to production. The specific amount of time will vary based on the scope of the job you’ve requested. We suggest ordering as early as possible to cover any unforeseen last minute changes.

Timeline Final timelines will also be affected by where your order is being shipped, as well as the shipping method you’ve chosen, so please keep this in mind if you need your order expedited.
