Sending Art work

Once your files has been successfully uploaded, our pre-press experts will review your file, looking to eliminate any problems, to make sure you get the results you want. Unlike most companies, we have no extra or hidden charges for reviewing your file and fixing most problems.
When it looks good, we will e-mail you a "proof" of your job for you to review, and send you an e-mail with a link to view your proof -- usually within one business day.

After you review your proof, send us a return e-mail with your approval, we will begin production. If you see problems or corrections you wish to make at this point, e-mail us back with your instructions, and we will make them for you for a small charge.
