Printers Galley

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

In printing and publication, proofs are preliminary versions of publications. They may be uncut and unbound, or in some cases electronic. They are normally created as part of the proofreading and copyediting processes, but can be used for promotional and review purposes also. Galley proofs are so named because in the days of handset type, the printer would set the page into galleys, metal trays into which the type was laid and tightened into place. These would be used to print a limited number of copies for editing markup. The printer would then receive the edits, rearrange the type, and print the final version
