Virtual proof can be requested and sent in (JPEG) format at a medium resolution, which is suitable for on‐screen reviewing, not for production.

*NOTE: The proof ultimately does not represent 100% of what the final printed piece will look like.

The digital proof approval and Sales Order must be SIGNED AND RETURNED before production begins and that constitutes approval to proceed with production. Delays to proof approval may result in a change on ship date.

A pre‐production sample (PPS) is strongly recommended when imprint colors are critical.

“Some materials used as decoration on these products contain lead or cadmium, chemicals know to the state of California to cause birth defects, or other reproductive harm.”

MULTI-COLOR OR DECAL IMPRINT
Due to the nature of the production process, a variance of 1/16” may happen between imprint colors. This variance is considered acceptable in the industry.
