Print Schedules & 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.
