Proofing in Make-Up

A black and white color photograph of two fair skinned people, a man and woman, as they stand over a table with various newspaper page layouts. The woman, on the right, appears to be middle aged and has short hair; she wears a collared button down shirt with a suit jacket and tie. With one hand on her hip, she uses a pen to point somewhere on the newspaper layout. The man, on the left, appears to be older and wears glasses and a button down shirt with jeans.

Proofing in Make-Up


A printer and copy editor review the layout and alignment of a make-up newspaper page.


Newspaper printing required speed and efficiency. Printers worked closely with writers and editors to ensure that pages were made-up accurately. Occasionally, this meant that editors would come to the Composing Room to implement changes.
