I am refering to the person to whom I send the files for reproduction. How would I know what the accepted industry tolerances are for how far the delivered piece can vary from the proof I approved? I would never assume that my desktop would give me an accurate proof but maybe someone else would, so good point. The proof I am refering to is the proof from one of those machines that is supposed to be calibrated to the press. The print guy brings it to me for approval. It always seems slightly different than what we actually get so I don't know what is acceptable in terms of the industry standard for the tolerances. Typically, it's not a big deal but with our Color Brochures it is a big deal so that's why I am trying to get it worked out. He is coming tomorrow to check out the variance and talk about solutions to this problem. I'd really like to know about those industry tolerances before he comes tomorrow if possible. Any advice on that would be helpful in dealing with him and in dealing with management regarding this issue. It all comes down on my head which is unfortunate because I don't seem to have much control of what actually comes off the press. Hopefully the printer and I can get it worked out. Thanks for your advice so far.
