  • In-House proofing recomendations


    We are toying with the idea of bringing proofing in-house. This would be for all of our fiction jackets and potentially for our picture book jackets/covers/interiors.

    In the US we are used to receiving either Fuji Final Proofs or Kodak Match Proofs, although all of our US print vendors are encouraging us to go to Epson proofs.

    In the Far East, we are receiving wet-proofs (for the most part). Occasionally, we receive Epsons - if it's for a paperback edition of a previously printed hardcover.

    Our goal would be to first use an Epson proofing system for our fiction jackets, and possibly expand that to our picture book titles as well. Some concerns are simulating matte and gloss lamination (as we are used to receiving laminated proofs), as well as what's involved in bringing proofing in-house (cost, maintenance, training, etc).

    Would love to hear some feedback from print vendors on what they are using, and even better if they have worked with their clients to set-up in-house proofing.n

    Thanks in advance.
