In printing, a proof is a preliminary version of a printed piece, provided so that the content and design can be checked for errors and alterations can be made before the final print run.

Proofs are vital in the print process to avoid costly errors in the final product.

Digital proofs can be viewed on a screen, while hard proofs provide a physical sample of the print.
