How long do customs take?

Getting started with hand screen strike offs or CAD’s only takes a couple of days. PDF’s of existing designs can be provided even faster. After strike offs have been approved and we receive your purchase order for a custom, there is typically a 4 week turn around. If new print cylinders must be engraved, that can add approximately 2 weeks.
