To review a printed or hardcopy proof of a book, you must first approve the eproof for the book, but, do not add/enable distribution, yet. After approving the eproof, place an order through your account to have a copy of the book printed and shipped to you or the approver. You will be charged the print, shipping and handling fees.
Your eProof should be available for approval within 3-5 business days after you upload your files through your account.
Click on the "Title(s) Pending Your Approval" button and then the title of your book, shown in blue. This takes you to the title approval page, where you can download your eProof. Click on the "download proof" link. Once you review your eProof, you may accept or reject it.
1) Approve the title and put it in distribution
2) Approve the title and keep it out of distribution until a later date (you can enable distribution at any time)
3) Do not approve the title and reject the eProof
When reviewing your eProof, it is important to remember that onscreen colors will not precisely match the printed version of your book. We recommend that publishers order at least one physical copy AKA hardcopy proof of their book before placing a large order.
If your title has never been in production (you have never approved the eProof) and you reject your eProof, you may upload revised or new files and will not be charged revision fees.
