We only accept advertising in PDF/X-1a format. Please supply a contract color proof such as a Creo Spectrum, or Kodak Approval. We can also accept a color accurate proof, such as output from professional grade Canon, Epson, or HP proofi ng devices. We always use our best efforts to ensure final reproduction of a submitted PDF matches the supplied proof, but we can not guarantee SWOP standard color matching with a non-contract grade proof. If a proof is not supplied, we cannot assume liability for omissions, misprints, or font defaults.
