Proof   Used to check copy for errors. Could be a laserprint of your text from your disk. A blueline proof is exactly a representation of what the finished product will look like on a special yellow/blue paper made from the film or negatives which , if okayed, will be used to make the printing plates. A Color Key is another type of proof used to see the precise color that will be produced when the job is finally printed.
