FAQ- Printing Turnaround
Printing Turnaround – Digital Production: For most jobs, the standard turnaround on digital production jobs is “in by 10 a.m., out by 4 p.m. on the same day”. This is where having multiple digital presses allows SLB Printing to service your same day and next day printing needs for a wide range of products including brochures, catalogs, proposals, guide books, flyers, stapled sets, postcards and lookbooks.
Printing Turnaround – Offset Production: For most jobs, the standard turnaround on offset production jobs is 3 to 5 work days. Additionally, depending on the job, SLB Printing has options for next day printing as well. Please note, not all of our offset printed products have a next day option so please contact us with your order specs and we can let you know if this option is available for your project. Lastly, jobs that can be produced with our next day option will be ready for pick up after 4 p.m.
Printing Turnaround – Wide Format Production: For most jobs run on our 60” wide HP inkjet that include short run posters, banners, floor graphics, backlit film and large vinyl labels, production time is “in by 10 a.m. out by 4 p.m. on the same day. However, for jobs that are larger than 60” wide, running on our Grand Format equipment, standard production is 3 to 5 work days with “next day” options available for orders that are press ready and in the shop before 9:30 a.m.
Finishing Turnaround – Contour Cutting: For most jobs, the standard turnaround time for wide format sheets or digital press sheets that require contour cutting is 1 extra work day. Your digital and wide format jobs usually print in 1 day and then the job goes into our finishing department the next morning. Completion of the contour cutting is usually by 4 p.m. on that day. There are options to print and contour cut the same day too.
Finishing Turnaround – Other bindery Options: If you job requires more bindery, such as perfect binding, coil binding, saddle stitching and more, can require extended turn around times. Call us to discuss the details.
