Custom Samples Types

Before placing an official order, you can ask us to send you free samples for your reference regarding quality and effects. Most of these samples are our past custom-made products or completely blank samples. All you need to do is provide your address and pay the postage.

In order to let you know the results of your project when printing, we recommend using the sample method of electronic proof. Electronic proofing is used to judge the quality and material of the printer. Please note that it can not be used as the final prototype when printing, but it can not be used as the color of the final prototype.
 
Prepress experts will check whether there are many problems in your documents, usually through prepress inspection software or computerized inspection. If we find a problem with your file, we usually add a printer mark to indicate where the file will be trimmed and provide some suggestions. The final file will be sent to you for your approval.
 
Some basic knowledge of pre-inspection:
  • Image resolution (minimum 300dpi)
  • Color profile (CMYK, not RGB)
  • Bleeding Zone Issues
  • Safe Zone Issues
  • Pagination Issue
