We are now proud to offer our online proofing system for Scientific Posters. Now, when you upload a file for printing, you will be given an option to view a proof of your poster before it prints. When the proof is ready, you will receive an email with a link to access the proofs online. From there, you can view your poster and let us know if it is approved for printing. If you select Not Approved, you then have the opportunity to explain why it isn’t approved, as well as upload a new file to replace it.
With this new addition to MakeSigns.com, we give our customers the extra assurance that their poster will be printed correctly.
Another feature that we offer for our online proofs is the option to send a link for the poster to someone else. Each poster in an order will have an individual link, so even if a group of people order posters together, they can proof their posters individually.
If you opt in to receiving a proof of your poster, here are a few things you need to know:
How will this affect the turn-around time of my poster?
If you submit your order to us by noon CST, you will still have the opportunity to receive same day printing, with a timely proof approval of course. We will always give you until at least noon CST, or at least an hour after we have finished your proofs, to approve your order for printing. Here are some examples to help explain:
How do I know when I will be sent my proofs?
We send out an email when your proofs are ready to view, and you can also sign up for text messaging alerts! We will send you a text when your posters are ready to proof. Unfortunately, we can’t give you an exact time that will be, as it all depends on our work load for the day. We put a lot of work into looking over these files, and some days it will take longer than others.
What if I find an error in the proof online?
You can swap your files right online, or let us know what the problem is, and we will fix it for you. We will do our best to prepare the second file as quick as possible for printing, so the sooner you can get back to us, the sooner we can ship your poster out.
If at any time, you need clarification or have any further questions about our online proofing process, let us know! We will be more than happy to help.
