Quality Statement
Printing Partners firmly believes that quality is a partnership that requires adherence between client and vendor to work closely in order to achieve the desired result. When we cannot achieve the desired result with the provided materials, we will work with clients to explain the necessary steps in achieving the desired results. The key is knowledge, trust and communication.

Quality Policy
The focal point of our quality policy is good communication between clients and customer service or sales representatives. It is standard operating procedure at Printing Partners to require the following quality procedures:

  • When possible, the client must provide a hard copy of digital files for proofing purposes
  • If our output matches the client’s hard copy, we will proceed to create a contract proof
  • If a file is sent via the Internet, Printing Partners will provide the client a PDF proof prior to page impositioning
  • An imposition proof is required for all jobs that are double-sided or folded. This allows us to show clients how the finished job will back-up and/or fold
  • An imposition proof is not intended to proof color. On jobs that involve spot color we will print to the pantone swatch book to achieve the desired color
  • A matchprint is required for all 4-color process jobs. This allows us to show clients the color that we will achieve on the press
  • At the client’s discretion, we offer the opportunity to do a press check when color is critical
  • A finished sample must accompany the job ticket so that employees in the finishing areas have a clear understanding of what the completed job is supposed to look like
