We provide a proof for each custom printed order. When you place your order online, you will create an account on our website using an email address and password. Within two business days of placing your order, a proof will be uploaded into that account. We will send a courtesy email notification when your proof is ready, but that email is automatically generated and may be filtered out or routed to a junk/spam mail folder. If you are not receiving our emails, you may want to log into your account periodically to check for the proof. When the proof has been uploaded, you will see a green link that you can select to view the proof. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the proof in the .PDF format. If you do not have this program, you can download it for free here. Our typesetters are looking mainly at the layout and overall aesthetic of the design when creating your proof. They are not reading your proof line-by-line, so please carefully review your proof for grammar, spelling, punctuation and text information. If any changes are needed to your text, layout, font, ink color, etc. select the pink "Make Changes" button and submit your corrections. We will have a revised proof uploaded for you within 24 business hours. We are glad to make as many changes as are needed until you are completely satisfied with your proof, and there is no additional charge for proof changes. Once you see the proof that you are happy with, please select the approval button in your account. Your order will not be sent to print until we receive your proof approval. If you have ordered multiple custom items together in one order, you must approve a proof for each separate item. Please note: Proofs are not provided for Picture Perfect and Sugar Cookies stickers and labels or for Noteworthy and Three Designing Women stamps and embossers. Please review your text carefully on the order form before submitting your order for these items.
Digital Design Studio
All customized orders are placed using our online Design Studio. This allows you to create and view a proof before you submit your order. The Design Studio lets you upload photographs (for digital photo cards and note pads), insert your text, change fonts and ink colors and work on the overall layout of your card. You can use your creativity to set up your proof in the design studio, or simply submit your text and let us style your proof similar to the sample that we show online. Either option for submitting your text will include a professional proof that will be uploaded into your online account on our website once the order is placed. Approval of the proof is required for us to print your order, and we will print exactly what you approve.
