Pre-Press Proofs – SWOP / GRACOL

As part of our prepress proofing capabilities, we produce SWOP or GRACOL proofs. We produce certified proofs at letter-bleed or tab-bleed sizes and larger. We add a color bar with grey-balance patches to all proofs. Our standard turnaround is 48 hours. If you require quicker turnaround, please try to give us a heads-up so that we can plan.

SWOP proofs are still required by many national publications.

You may supply your PDF file for imaging to SWOP proof, or supply your original source files. We will perform a quick preflight on the file before imaging just to make sure that there are no press-stopping errors present like RGB or low-res images. If you supply source files and would like a PDF file for your publication, let us know and we can produce that for you as well. Ideally, the proof should be produced from the final PDF file, if one is required.
