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.
