Re: how to make sure nothing is clipping?

For your whites & blacks add a "Threshold" layer and adjust the slider either way to see what clips where. For colour you really need a proofing profile from the printer to check for clipping.

Best to talk with the client and see whether they are happy with files supplied as is and have an in house designer to deal with printing, or if they can give you more info and provide profiles that give you printer and media info to work with.

Once you have a proofing profile you can load it into Photoshop and preview your image closer to how it will print compared with what you see on screen.
