Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality.They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.

What is solf-folding?
The size of our newsletters are 8.5" x 11"; however, for mailing, we commonly add an additional "soft-fold" to newsletters so that they fold down to 5.5" x 8.5". By folding to 5.5" x 8.5", your newsletters will be eligible to mail at the letter rate, which is less expensive than the flat rate.
Can newsletters be mailed without an envelope? Yes, newsletters can be self-mailers. If you select our mailing services option, we will include tabs to properly close your newsletter so that they can be easily mailed by USPS without an envelope.
What’s the difference between each paper stock?Gloss paper stocks will have a shiny appearance and are great to use when promoting products. Matte paper stocks have a velvet finish and thus less shine, which can give your materials an elegant, professional look. 80# gloss and matte text are lightweight and economical paper stocks. 100# gloss and matte text are high quality, medium weight papers.
