Artwork submitted is assumed that color, images, and copy are proofed and correct from client. Any necessary artwork or copy preparation may be billed to advertiser.
Client also has the option to submit a SWOP 3 certified proof via mail, as well. By choosing not to supply a SWOP 3 certified proof, the color reproduction of the ad will be based on industry standard best practices to achieve as accurate color as possible from the supplied digital file.
