Our graphics department creates virtual proofs. In order to expedite this process and move to production as quickly as possible, vectorized files are preferred. However if an Illustrator or vectorized PDF file is not available, our production team will recreate the art to fit our work flow. It may take 2-3 business days to produce your proof. This will also serve as a factory proof for final sign-off before moving to production. All lead times begin once a proof is approved for production. We realize that rush situations do occur and we will work hard to find a solution that meets your timing needs.
