Proofing is a method of producing either hardcopy or electronic facsimiles suitable for viewing a design before printing and for early, intermediate, or final approval. 

There are normally two reasons for proofing:

  • To make sure that the content is correct i.e. the image is the right way round, all the written information is correct, there are no spelling mistakes, the images are in the right place and do not conflict.
  • To ensure that the colors are correct in the design (color proof*)
