Proofing services range from simple two-tone proofing to detailed color match proofs for high impact applications. Our color match system is calibrated to the capabilities of our printing presses to ensure that final production labels will look identical to the proofs we provide.

Print-O-Tape will soon be offering on-line proofing and on-line image archival to our clients. On-line proofing will shorten the proof approval process and will allow for fast turnaround time of finished labels. On-line image archiving will allow clients immediate access to their label graphics for review and maintenance purposes.
