Saved orders with PDF proofs


A web-to-print order can be saved prior to completion and a proof PDF is generated for the customer if “create PDF for review with saved orders” option is enabled for that template.


Web-to-print orders saved with a proof PDF are billable regardless of any other conditions. Your web-to-print templates that have this option enabled become billable when they reach the saved order stage, regardless if the customer finalized the order in the checkout. There is double-billing, so if the order is finalized you are charged for it only once.

The PDF file is only generated if this option was enabled for the template.

The quality of the images is set to 96dpi, all text is converted to curves, native color space is used, no cropmarks, no bleed.
