LEAD TIME
  • Photocopy/printing: 8 business hours

  • Bound books: 1–2 business days*
  • Personal orders: 1–2 business days 

Lead times may be extended during peak times, which include the week before the beginning of each term, the first two weeks of each term and the last two weeks of each term. College-related orders take precedence over personal orders. We request personal orders be submitted during off-peak times.

*Lead time may be longer for very large orders. 

ACCEPTED FILE FORMATS
  • We prefer “ready-for-print” PDF files, as we are unable to format or edit your project.
  • Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents are also accepted and will automatically be converted into a PDF file when submitted through the ordering system. Be sure to review formatting when the file is converted to PDF format.
