What time should I order if I want a standard turnaround?
To get your print on a standard turnaround time, you’ll need to make sure you order before 12pm and avoid fancy finishes like white ink, perforation, lamination, rounded corners and personalisation. To find out what the standard turnaround time is for your product, just check the delivery tab on the respective product page.
There are (as always) a few exceptions to the rule! Because we know you need certain essentials a little faster, you can order the following products up until 5pm and still get your standard 48 hour turnaround time:
Leaflets & Flyers
Wedding Belly Bands
Wedding Folded Invites
Wedding Folded Menus
Wedding Folded Order of Service
Wedding Folded Thank you Cards
Wedding Order of Service
Wedding RSVP Cards
Wedding Save the Dates
Wedding Table Names
Wedding Thank you Cards
