Customer-supplied cover PDF

Before we prepare your cover proof, your cover PDF must pass a prepress evaluation to ensure our print specifications have been met. The cost of this evaluation and your first online proof are included in your quoted price.

Cover PDF prepress evaluation includes checking for issues that create problems in the printing process such as image quality and layout dimensions based on trim size including spine width. We do not check for editorial issues such as punctuation, grammar, or spelling.

If your cover PDF does not adhere to our specifications, it will not pass the Prepress Evaluation and our Prepress Technician will contact you. You will need to modify your file to meet our print specifications and resubmit the new PDF through the secure file upload tool on our website. New files submitted after you’ve reviewed your first proof will incur additional charges as they will require another Prepress Evaluation.

Color Samples (before a job is started)

If you would like to see how your color pages and cover will print before you start a job with us, we can print color samples for you. The files will not go through the PDF Inspection process, and will not be trimmed to size. Covers will not be laminated. They will be printed on your chosen paper, and will be folded and mailed to you via USPS. The samples pages are not proofs, they are only intended to be examples of how your color will look when printed on our equipment.
