CDPDX Manufacturing Times Explained

  • Turn times are not guaranteed, & are average manufacturing estimates. We try our best to meet or beat!
  • Only print ready files submitted on our templates are usable.
  • If we are paid for prepress time, then emailed proofs are free.
  • If proofs are not ordered you get what you submit (if our prepress staff finds an art issue we will contact you with options).
  • For any project that has a proof, turn time starts from proof approval and not from the time you start the order. Master disc and print ready art files on our templates must be submitted before 1pm for that day to be day 0.

Example: if you brought in a master disc and the art file is print ready before 1pm on Monday, and you ordered next day service, you would get the project before 5pm on Tuesday.

Production time does not include the pre-approval process of inspecting your art files, nor the time it takes for you to approve your art proofs.  Our prepress review process typically does not take more than 3 business days, and is largely determined by the condition of the art files given to us.  Production time begins when you approve your proofs.
