Proofing and Press Checking

Proofing

Prior to printing, COG Print will send you physical PDF proof (if ordered).
It’s imperative that the client checks this proof thoroughly before we proceeding to production printing.

PDF proofs are sent for all COG Print jobs as a formality and will offer a very close representation of what the end project will look like.
These Digital Proofs are mostly used for faster project san flower cost jobs.

We understand that not all our clients can supply artwork that has been prepared perfectly for press (thats our job right?!),
Check out COG Print file guidelines for more information. If required, COG Print can convert supplied files for a minimal fee.
