Proofing – video brochures

We provide a number of proofing options depending on the time available and the complexity of the project. All the options are provided as a complimentary service, providing we have the time in the production process to do so. The various options are detailed below.

1) A .pdf or soft proof (1-day)

The most popular proofing for softcover video brochures.

Benefits

a) Easily shared via e-mail

b) Reliable and detailed

c) Quick to produce and a good color match

Drawbacks

a) A .pdf proof does not show up anomalies in the design which become apparent with a mock-up

b) We cannot imitate special treatments or the dimming effect of matte lamination in the .pdf

2) Digital mock-up & pdf (lead times 1-2 w/days)

By far the most popular and quickest proofing option we offer, upon receipt of digital files, we digitally print the outer wrap, hand-cut a sample (without lamination), mount the screen, load video, shoot and take digital pictures. We then upload to WeTransfer for you to download as a working proof. We provide this along with a low resolution .pdf to check color-match. This is the basic level of proofing, the most popular and the quickest.

Benefits:

a)  Quick

b) Reliable

c) Highlights any design oversights

d) You can see the loading sequence and button controls working clearly

Drawbacks:

a) As this is a soft proof, we cannot imitate lamination which affects the color accuracy

b) We cannot imitate special colors or foils with a digital output.

3) Production sample (Lead Times 6-7 w/days):

The most reliable and 100% accurate method of proofing is to follow the steps above and then to print, die-cut, laminate, and ship the first production copy for approval prior to finishing and delivering your bulk order. A working sample is the only truly authentic way to show what the finished product will look like (because it is just that).

Benefits:

a) 100% accurate

Drawbacks:

a) Adds to lead time by 4-5 days

4) Video boxes (2 Weeks):

Where we are undertaking video box orders, all tooling and design templates are originated from scratch. At the preliminary design stage, we produce a white dummy to confirm the structural design of the box. Once this is finalized, we print a digital mock-up and finally ship a first-off-line production copy for approval prior to delivering the bulk order.
