Print File Graphic Check

 

Vispronet® wants to ensure that your graphic will turn out the way you designed it. That's why we conduct an automated "standard 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.

Alternatively we offer a "professional graphic check" (29,75 € incl. VAT. / 25,00 € excl. VAT.) which includes additional checking criteria and 15 minutes of design time by one of our experienced prepress designers . If further adjustments are necessary additional costs (20,83 € incl. VAT. / 17,50 € excl. VAT.) per graphic unit will apply.
A detailed checking report will follow.
