Will I be able to see a sample or proof of the addresses on my artwork before my order is printed?

Yes.  You will have to approve the PDF proof provided in the My Account section. The PDF proof will show an example of one address on your artwork. On Approval, we will process your order. Else new Files have to be provided in case of any issues with the current one. You can send the Files to contact@printmagic.com for further action.

What font, size, and colors will be used for the Variable Addressing portion?

The Variable Addressing portion has a default font of 12pt Arial, black only.

Note:- if your CSV data file contains extremely long names or addresses, the font will automatically be resized to fit the addressing area but will be no smaller than the 9pt type.

Please see the example below:

Will PrintMagic modify my CSV data file to correct any errors or typos?

No. PrintMagic does not proofread nor flag or correct errors. It is your responsibility to double-check and ensure the validity of your data. Invalid addresses, typos, misspellings, inaccurate zip codes, etc. are not the responsibility of PrintMagic.

What if my CSV data file has less records than the run size I ordered? If I order a run size of 500, but my data file has only 450 addresses, will I get the additional 50 envelopes printed with my artwork?

PrintMagic will print the artwork you provided for the full run size ordered. Variable addresses will be printed for each record in your CSV data file. The entire job, with addressed and non-addressed envelopes, will be carton-packed and delivered via the chosen delivery method.

What if my CSV data file has more records than the run size I ordered?

If your data file contains more records than the run size you ordered, you will be notified and asked to either upload a revised CSV data file with less records, or you will be asked to cancel the order and place an order for the next available run size higher than the number of records.
