The need for press checks

A press check is a procedure that allow a print buyer, designer or agency to validate a publication, right before it is getting printed. This site has a page that covers the basics of press checks. It explains how to prepare for a check and what to look out for or ignore.

In November 2011 I put up a poll on this site asking visitors how much press checks are still used. As with any poll the results need to be taken with a grain of salt but they are interesting nevertheless.There is also a thread on the b4print forums to share opinions about press checks.
