How long will my job take to be printed?
We always do our best to meet your deadline. Turnaround times vary based on the print specifications. The Digital Print Center provides on-demand color and black and white digital printing while you wait for small jobs. Larger, more complex jobs will require from 24 hours to 7-10 business days. Please contact us for an estimated turnaround time: 609.258.5560 or 609.258.3493.

Do you do all the printing in-house?
Most jobs are completed in-house on digital presses. Some jobs (depending on project specifications) will be outsourced to our printing partners. Due to the large volume of work we do, Print Services is able to negotiate best pricing from our print partners. We manage the project from start to finish, including estimating (obtaining competitive bids), proof review, press checks, delivery and final billing.
