Color Proofing:
Rasco Graphics has many types of proofs that will fit your job's requirements. You should have the most cost effective proof that will give you the visual information you will need to verify that the printed job will look the way you had envisioned.
Your Customer Service Representative will suggest the proper proof for you and your job. They will also help you arrange for the proof to be delivered electronically or by courier.

Electronic Soft Proofing:
An electronic "soft proof" will be sent to your computer. It will show you the size, text, and color of your job. This file should be much smaller than your original file and may be a lower resolution than the one used for printing, because the monitor does not require the high resolution that an image setter would. This proof can be used instead of the laser proof, but we suggest you continue on to the Digital Contract Color Proof for best results on color jobs
