What are pre-production proofs?

Posted August 2, 2010

A pre-production proof (also known as a spec sample) is an actual sample of the item you are ordering with your imprint. Pre-production proofs are available for most items InkHead carries.

  • Pre-production proofs are recommended when time allows, as they will give you the best idea of how your items will appear when printed in mass.
  • Upon approval of the pre-production proof, your items will be manufactured with standard production time. Expedited production service may also be available; be sure to ask your account manager about all production time options available.
  • Pre-production proofs typically incur setup costs in addition to the cost of the item, and can add an additional 5-10 business days to the ordering process to allow for factory setup, production and shipping.
  • Please call 800-554-0127 if you would like to request a pre-production proof.

If you want simply to look at the product you’re thinking about ordering, we do offer free samples. Be sure to review our Free Sample Policy for more information.
