Digital Proofs & Press Checks
We send a digital mock up with every order and require that you approve them before we send your job to print. This is to ensure that the finished product matches your expectations exactly — we want that!
The digital proof is our production team’s blueprint for printing the job. It specifies the following:
What ink colors we will be printing on the shirt
What size the artwork will be printed at
Where the artwork will be placed on the shirt, typically relative to the bottom of the collar or from the hem of the sleeve
Our digital proofs are generally accurate however the templates we use do not account for every possible garment style we procure from various manufacturers.
A press check is when the customer comes to our location at a scheduled time and approves a physical sample before production begins. Press checks are typically scheduled at 8am so that we can setup the job in advance and have printed samples ready for review when you arrive.
What press check includes:
Verification that the printed proof matches the approved digital proof
Minor adjustments can typically be made same day:
Adjustments to print placement location
Adjustments to print colors
Adjustments to squeegee variables: hardness, pressure, number of print strokes
Changes requiring significant re-work:
Changes to artwork print size
Changes to artwork separation or number of colors in artwork
