types of prooﬁng
Prooﬁng is an essential part of the print production process. Different methods of prooﬁng the said document can be performed at different stages throughout the process.
A digital laser print of the document, to check screen structure, image and text positioning. Cheap way to mock up/proof but itʼs usually only black & white.
Another style of digital print, incorporating colour. Inexpensive and good approximation of what the ﬁnal product is to look like, although, the colours may differ to the ﬁnal colouring.
Proof of either individual or groups of photos enabling a check of the images prior to ﬁnal proof or print. But the images arenʼt shown in context and in the layout, which can be a downside.
A colour ﬁnal proof used to form a contract between the client and the printer. This is the ﬁnal prooﬁng stage prior to print, forming an accurate representation of the ﬁnal product.
