Printing Turnaround Times
Turnaround times are dependent on several production factors.
Turnaround times are calculated based on the following information and should give a fairly accurate turnaround time.Turnaround times, however, are not guaranteed.
- Turnaround times do not start until after any proofs are approved!
- Shipping or delivery times are not included in any turnaround times.
- Custom Orders and Estimates are not necessarily based on these calculations.
- Business Card turnaround times vary greatly depending on Stock and Finishes – Be sure to check the Calculator!
- Other product turnaround times can also vary depending on Stock and Finishes – Be sure to check the Calculator.
- Any product ordered after the ‘Cutoff’ Time will add 1 day to the turnaround time. (Cutoff time is 12pm)
- Any Folding, Numbering, Padding, Perforation or similar finishing will each add 1 day to the turnaround time. So if you have Numbering and Padding, that will add 2 days to the turnaround time.
- An email/online Proof will typically add about 1 day to the turnaround time.
- A Printed Proof can add around 3 days to the turnaround time.
- We already try to print your orders as fast as we can. But if you ask for a RUSH, that will subtract 1 day from the turnaround time. Rush printing can only be applied to certain products as listed below.
