What does turnaround time actually mean in the print industry?
At AnasPrinting.com, we define turnaround time as the time from point of order or sign-off of proofs to the delivery of the printed order.
The total turnaround time for an order can differ and this is usually dependent on a number of factors such as:
- the product type ordered
- the quantity
- the materials
- the complexity of the finishing required
- the logistics to deliver the product to its destination.
We like to offer our clients with as much flexibility as possible, so we don’t set specific turnaround times for individual products like other companies do.
However, as a general guide, expect a turnaround time for printing of 48 hours to 5 working days for business stationery, flyers, brochures, posters, etc.
Any signage products will finish and deliver within 2-4 working days.
Promotional Products, Embroidered items: 5 to 14 working days.
Screen Printing shirts, etc: 5 to 10 working days.
