Production Times

The following are our standard production times in business days. We pride ourselves on quality, consistency and fast delivery. Occasionally, there may be factors (special requests, unclear instructions, production problems, etc.) that might cause an order to be delayed. We rarely miss our production times, however they are not guaranteed. Rush service is available for most of our services, lab schedules permitting. See below for applicable charges.

Shipping carriers are forecasting longer than normal transit times for the 2020 holiday season. We recommend placing orders early to account for any delays on the part of the shipping carriers. For a full list of shipping deadlines, click here.
