How does preflighting save money in the production process?

Preflighting, or the process of checking for digital errors in a job ready for print, saves money by informing a designer what to change and what to keep with regards to correct/incorrect use of type, color, images, alignment and resolution (among many issues). Preflighting is sort of like the print preview option we see in word documents; without it, a print job may be very costly as errors not detected will force a designer to reprint their work (and use up a lot of toner/ink and paper in the process) until up to professional standards.
