Printing a Hard Proof

In the language of the print world, a soft-proof is viewed on a monitor, and a hard proof (sometimes referred to as a match print) is viewed on a piece of paper, typically printed on the device that is less expensive than the final output, such as an inkjet, or laser printer. A hard proof gives you something you can hold in your hands, and is not only useful for viewing colors, but even evaluating the layout. Since a monitor typically displays a document at a different size, you now have an exact size match to the final document.
