Creating an HTML proof: email, web banner, or website

We do things differently here at PageProof and one such thing is letting your team of reviewers place their feedback directly on HTML content that they are viewing – that’s right, no screenshots or strange ways to ‘fake’ review of HTML content. It’s the real deal.

You can create an HTML proof of:

  • An email

  • A website (using either an HTML file, or a live website URL)

  • A web banner (either a single web banner, or a gallery view of multiple web banners in one proof).

To upload your HTML email, or website

Step 1

Drag and drop your .html or .htm file onto the file dropper icon.

Step 2

Complete the proof setup screen, and send out your proof. For instructions on how to complete the proof setup screen click here.

Reviewing the proof

Your reviewers can review* the HTML content, and easily change their viewport to see the content on different device sizes (mobile, tablet, desktop, for example).

*Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari are the required browsers for HTML review.

  • To optimize your website for proofing, follow the instructions here.

To upload an HTML web banner, or gallery of web banner ads

Step 1

Your web banner must contain a .html or .htm file.

Create a master folder. Inside the master folder, have a folder with the actual size of the banner ad. For example: 200x300 (no spaces)

Step 2

Download this index.html file, (the link will open a new tab displaying the HTML. Right mouse click and select save as...). Then add this index.html file into the master folder.

Step 3

Zip the master folder and drag and drop the zipped folder onto the file dropper on your dashboard.


  • To display multiple web banners in one proof, follow the instructions here.
