Proofing Policy

An approval to send an order to print is confirmation that you have reviewed the proofs/product completely, agree that all content in the proofs are correct, and hereby release First in Print from liability of any content errors that should be discovered after production begins.

Proofing is an important step. Whether you have submitted your own artwork or First in Print designs it for you, it is YOUR responsibility to check for any errors prior to printing. Please carefully check spelling, phone numbers, fonts, placement and all other details.


Electronic proofs closely represent the image, color and text placement, but is not the exact color. This is due to your monitor’s color settings being slightly different than that of the designers as well as the printer’s machinery. The colors of your proofs as they appear on your monitor, are only a close representation of the final printed piece. Your monitor uses a completely different system for displaying colors (RGB) to what is used in the print business CMYK or Pantone. colors may vary depending on your monitor’s brightness, contrast and color adjustment settings. The image may appear larger or smaller than actual production size depending on the resolution of your monitor. We can not be responsible for variances in final printed colors unless they are outside of our production department’s ink tolerance specifications.


To limit any possible errors in artwork, designs will not go to production until they have been approved by the client. First in Print will not be held responsible for errors if the client misses something in the proof, has reused a printed or digital proof, or if the client, during order placement, has requested the order go to production without proofing.


First in Print shall make every effort to ensure the final product is free of any grammatical and spelling errors, before giving the final product to the client. It is agreed that it is the client’s responsibility to ensure that there are no spelling or grammatical errors contained in the final product. It is agreed that First in Print is not responsible or held liable for any errors contained in the final product after the final proof has been approved by the client or the final product has been approved by the client, committed to print, or posted in view of the public.
