Proofing Press
Special proofing presses are sometimes used to print a proof, using the same paper and ink as that which the final print job will use, but without the pressure of using the finished plates as in a press proof. Although these proofs are almost accurate, the colours are sometimes not 100% correct; they tend to be more vibrant.
