*************HOW TO CHECK A PROOF ***********************
Please use the advice which follows, advice which is borne out of much experience, to guide you in checking your proof. Checking and signing off a proof is a solemn responsibility! Your attitude towards checking a proof is critical. Here are some points on the attitude you should adopt when checking a proof.
• Attention to detail is the key to checking a proof.
• Check the WHOLE proof even if it is a reproof, and even if there were only a couple of minor changes.
• DO NOT focus only on one aspect of the job — for example, the text and not the colours, or the images and not the text. Always check headings carefully.
• Try to look at the proof as if you have never seen the job before.
• If possible, have someone unfamiliar with the job to check the proof as well.
• Are there any typographical errors?
• Are there any spelling errors (pay particular attention to headlines)?
• Is there anything missing from the job — logos, lines of text, boxes, borders, lines?
• Are graphics positioned, cropped and scaled correctly?
• Enlarge the job to 400% and check that graphics are sharp and not jagged. They will print more or less as you see them.
• Are the various elements of the job the right way up?
This is particularly important in the case of greeting cards.
• Are the various elements in the job correctly aligned?
• Are the colours correct?
