When matching the color for custom checks the print plant uses the pantone matching system (PMS) that is an industry standard for spot colors. It is based on thousand standardized ink colors. The color for the custom checks is mixes before the printing process begins to minimize variation in the print run.
When a company orders a large amount of custom checks, Printech recommend using press-proof and produce high-quality one-off copies of the production artwork. This way the client can make changes to colors and information printed on the checks and approve it prior to a large print job. The policy of press-proof can save printing plan and customer a lot of money instead of producing hundreds of thousands of custom checks and not being satisfied with the final product.
