Proofing Instructions

Thank you for advertising in one of our publications! We have implemented a new ad proof and approval system. This system will be speedier, increase accuracy and make it easier for both you, the client and our ad department to proof and track advertisements.

Here’s how it will work:

Once the production department has created your ad, you will be sent an email containing a link to a web page containing your ad. If, upon review, you are satisfied with your ad, you will simply click Approved and a notice will be sent to the production department and your salesperson.

If you have changes you would like to make, there are two ways to do so. When you click Changes Needed, you will be presented with a text box. Use this box to suggest general changes such as “Change red type to blue” or “wrong photo.”

However, if you would like to suggest specific changes to an element or elements, select Annotations. Click on whichever part of the ad where you’d like to see a change and a box for your comments will appear. Important: please be sure to click on Changes Needed after you make your annotations.

After production has addressed your concerns, you will receive another proof to confirm that your suggestions have been implemented.

The beauty of this system is that it allows the customer an easier way to proof and correct their ad and enables us to track the status of every ad in our system. We think you’ll like it and we would love to hear your comments after you’ve had a chance to try it out.

If you encounter any problems, please contact us at 360.332.1777 or
