The easiest way to send a proof to the client is email. A low-resolu-tion pdf file or a TIFF or JPEG image file moves quickly over the phone line to be checked. In this way the proof traffic takes place as quickly as the rest of the prepress process.

A proof can also be supplied as a hard copy. In this case, the printing method and the paper type are considered while producing the proof. Therefore a hard-copy proof gives a true indication of the final print. Cromaline never told the absolute truth of the final print, in spite of it's quality (or actually because of it).

As a matter of fact, a proof is not necessary, as the pdf file supplied by the client is an electronic proof as such.
