Approval of PDF’s for CD Duplication

It is essential that we receive approval of all artwork PDF files prior to CD duplication production or manufacture. Once we have processed a customer’s artwork we will always email the final PDF that has been prepared for print. This is the actual PDF file that will directly be used for printing so it is important that the customers checks all aspects of the file before giving email approval.

Elements to check for include:

• Text spelling and punctuation
• Correct fonts
• Alignment of artwork
• Page numbers
• Colours
• Overprint settings

Also, especially when approving multi page booklets be sure to scroll through all pages of the PDF. We often receive emails from customers who think there are pages missing from their artwork when it is just a simple mistake of not correctly scrolling through the pages of the PDF file.

When giving approval of any PDF’s for booklet, inlay, CD or DVD printing it is important to understand that a PDF viewed on a RGB computer monitor can never be an exact colour match for the final printed matter. The main reason for this is that computer monitors use a RGB colour system whereas commercial print is a CMYK colour process.

For critical colour proofing of artwork we can obtain colour calibrated hard copy proofs from our print suppliers. These colour proofs provide the great colour accuracy between proof and final print.
