…I hope that all of your jobs print perfectly and they don't…have any problems but, you should be prepared for what might happen.…Now everybody has their own responsibilities.…The printer's responsibilities include using the…correct stock, making sure that that press…run matches any proofs that you've approved, both for color and for content.…And of course the printer needs to…be running that press to standard specifications.…But you, as a client,…have responsibilities as well. You have to meet those deadlines.…Make sure you get your files submitted on time, or you delay the schedule.…
When the printer gives you a proof, very carefully inspect it.…Anything you miss at this stage could cause problems on press.…If you've signed off on that proof, you've said that's what you want to see printed.…Also, if you're attending the press check…you should still carefully inspect the press sheet.…Now the pressman has a very sharp eye,…but sometimes it's helpful to have a second set of…eyes and you can be that second set of eyes.…
