I find it ridiculous that they would charge for an electronic proof.  All the custom printing sites I looked at provided an electronic proof for free, although some of them limit the number of times they will change the proof for free.  I have only seen charges for a proof if you want an actual paper proof. 

That said, there is no way I would pay the printing charges without seeing a proof!  What do you do if there is a mistake?

FYI, here is the link to the proof policy from the site where I’m ordering my invitations:

This policy is pretty typical for the sites I have considered.

I emailed them to ask what benefit you would get from the B&W proof, considering you can already see the preview on the screen.  I asked if there was any danger that the final product would not look like the preview.

The response was that the final product should look exactly like the preview on the screen (which you can print out from your browser).  The difference is that if you submit the order, and don’t order the B&W proof, it will go straight to production.  If you do order the proof, they’ll email to you first in black and white, and you can discuss it with a customer service person and make any additional changes before submitting it for production.

So, no, it’s not really worth it if you are careful in reviewing your onscreen preview.  If you are paranoid and want extra checks before you submit the order, then you would go for the B&W proof.
