How long is the turnaround time for printing?


Whilst we ask you to please allow for the times below, they actually give us a bit of 'wriggle room' -- just in case something happens or if we're having a crazy-busy period.

For example, our checking process might find an error and we need to re-print, or a machine may need servicing -- it still holds up the process.

But we do love to surprise you with an early delivery wherever possible...
...we just don't want you to count on it as expected.


Once The Printery has received your completed order, paid and complete with correct artwork, our processing times are as follows:


Digital Printing

REGULAR: 3 FULL Business Days + Shipping

PRIORITY: 1 FULL Business Day + Shipping (must be received by 8am WST to be shipped same day)

PLUS add an EXTRA day for each of these additional processes: die cutting, edge foiling and custom drilling.

DUPLEXING (gluing sheets together) requires time to gently dry so we require an additional TWO business days.


1 Colour Letterpress or 1 Colour Foil (includes digital + 1 colour letterpress or foil)

REGULAR: 10 FULL Business Days + Shipping

PRIORITY: 6 FULL Business Days + Shipping

PLUS add an EXTRA day for each additional process (die cut, duplex, foil, second colour foil, edge foil, letterpress or second letterpress colour)



1 Colour Letterpress
