Custom Process and Timelines

Getting started with hand screen strike offs or CADs can take up to two weeks from date of confirmed submission requests. PDF manipulations of existing designs may be provided sooner! Once a strike off has been approved and a purchase order is received, lead times are generally four weeks. If a new print cylinder is needed, please add an additional two weeks.
