Or if you prefer a more "hands on" approach by an experienced prepress professional:
A contract proof is a way of ensuring that your final artwork will reproduce on the printed page, exactly the way you intend.
With the latest GMG driven Epson proofing devices, we can accurately simulate all the modern offset and gravure printing conditions (including newsprint) demanded by all the major publishers and commercial printers in Europe.
From a quarter page advert in national press, a multi-page gravure printed catalogue, or a glossy brochure with spot colours, we can produce colour-accurate contract proofs to match any printing process, thereby eliminating any unexpected, time consuming and, potentially, costly results on press.
We can also create colour proofs for American and Australian printing standards...
Each certified proof we produce is analysed and validated to ensure accuracy to the required printing standard.
