Art Proof Approval Process

What is an Art Proof?

Art Proofs give you the ability to view your artwork electronically before we start production of your promotional items. The electronic proof of your artwork is black and white or sometimes in color, ready for viewing of your layout. When you receive the actual item it will have the color imprint you have selected. This is important as we want to make sure that you are satisfied. We do not start production until we have your approval. Fast responses insure your promotional product will be delivered on time.

Garrett Specialties Sales Team will email you a link so you can view your artwork electronically. We will make recommendation if necessary. The process is easy. Just click on the link to view your proof. A pdf file will appear for you to view. You can print it out along with the approval or just respond to the e-Proof Approval.

Your approval form will contain the following information:

Please proof carefully for spelling errors, omissions, and layout accuracy. It is your responsibility to correct any errors. Garrett Specialties assumes no responsibility for errors after a proof has been authorized to print. Please note changes or revisions to your proof from your original instructions may cause revision in your ship date. Delays in proof approval also may require a change in your schedule ship dates. Occasionally, some fax machines may distort the image. Please pay close attention to numbers.

It is imperative that you view your proof and submit your approval and/or
changes promptly to maintain your anticipated delivery date. 

Please keep in mind that a virtual proof is not a printed sample of your artwork on our product. The size and placement of the artwork may vary from the proof when actually printed on the product. Carefully review the proof for verification of copy & layout.

Due to inherent technical differences in color monitors, the imprint colors and product colors depicted in the proof will not resemble those in the final product.

We make every effort to match requested custom colors, but cannot guarantee a 100% exact match. Imprints are applied using pad, screen inks or other methods. These inks are hand mixed as close as possible to the requested color but may vary 2 to 4 shades. For this reason an exact PMS match cannot be guaranteed.

Your order is ON HOLD until we receive an approval from you in reference to
your artwork.

Please select the appropriate option:

This Proof is Correct. Please Print As Is.

A Comment Box will also be provided so that you can make your changes.
