print schedules and turnaround time

PRINT SCHEDULES AND TURNAROUND TIME
Although Reprographics will make every possible effort to accommodate any emergency
deadline, there may be factors beyond our control that prevent us from meeting requested
delivery dates. We strongly urge all of our clients to plan their printing and/or mailing projects
with the aforementioned turnaround times in mind.
If we cannot meet your requirements in-house, our print buyers will work with you to
contract the work to a commercial printer who can meet your needs utilizing the University’s
procurement policy.
