Companies that specialize in promotional products have to be fast and accurate when dealing with high volumes of custom orders. Production delays and errors can be devastating. Each custom order is fraught with potential errors that could significantly delay product delivery and negatively impact the business. Whether selling directly to consumers or through a distributor, minimizing these risks is critical to ensure smooth supply chain operations for providers of promotional products. The right review and approval tool not only eliminates production errors, but also reduces turnaround time and allows for faster delivery.

ProofHQ for Promotional Products

Problem ProofHQ Solution
Traditional design review and approval involves emailing PDF attachments and gathering feedback through text in email threads. This is extremely inefficient when dealing with high volumes of custom orders as it requires sharing large files that clog inboxes and slow down manual review processes. Gathering feedback on precise visual elements through email text is cumbersome. Errors are often missed, leading to costly delays in production. ProofHQ provides a simple way for promotional products companies to review and approve design work. This means no more emailing large file attachments. Intuitive tools for marking and commenting directly on the proofs make it much easier to understand feedback in the context of visuals. ProofHQ improves collaboration and slashes labor costs as time is no longer wasted collecting and collating feedback. Additionally, it is significantly simpler to catch and amend errors before designs go to print, dramatically reducing rework.

Raves from promotional products companies

Here is what promotional products companies say about productive ProofHQ proofing tools and automation.

logo-test-sm-l“Since introducing ProofHQ to our clients we have virtually eliminated our paper proof review process. Our communication process has been streamlined and e-mail communications has been dramatically reduced. The comment history, version control and the task assignments has allowed not only us, but our customers, to take ownership of their part of the review/approval process. We are now rolling this workflow out to other satellite offices for use with their customers.

ProofHQ is a fantastic, easy to use product.”

David Gearhart, Key Account Manager/Global Print Production Lead, SML

We have now gotten feedback from some of our biggest customers thanking us for being on the leading edge in our industry by offering something of this sort. Currently no one else in the custom sports apparel industry uses any sort of online art approval system. Our Executive Committee is thrilled with how quickly our employees and customers have adopted this system and I would like to thank John and all your staff for their help in making the transition as smooth as possible.”
