        4. Approval + Production: You will receive a final proof for approval in your inbox. It is the client’s responsibility to review the proof for misspellings and any other mistakes or changes. Once approved, no additional changes can be made. An invoice for final payment will be sent to your email, which is due in order to begin printing and production.
