Graphic Checking

Vispronet® wants to ensure that your graphic will turn out the way you designed it. That's why we conduct an automated graphic check on all artwork submitted. This automated graphic check is free of charge and only checks certain criteria listed below. If your graphic meets these criteria it will immediately release for production. In case your graphic does not meet the checking criteria, Vispronet® will inform you per e-mail. You will then have the option to make changes to your graphic and resubmit it to us. Please consider this for the timeline of your project.

As an alternative and for peace of mind we offer a professional graphic check which includes additional checking criteria and 15 minutes of design time by one of our experienced prepress designers. The additional cost is 15.00 USD per graphic. A 5.00 USD PDF proof for visual confirmation of your design can be selected which will give you the option to review and the need to approve your design before it is printed.

Do you need help creating a design? Our design team is here to help you turn your idea into a print-ready artwork. Please contact us to find out more about the process.
