Frequently Asked Questions: Graphic Design
Occasionally we can, but this depends on our workload at the moment. We can make suggestions to you in the event that we cannot provide immediate turnaround. Certain products require minimum production time that is outside our control and most things we design or have made require a digital layout be produced (by us) that will be used by the vendor to produce your end product.
We handle projects on a first-come first-served basis, and we constantly prioritize our work based on our customer's schedule. Realistically, some requests are simply handled and if we can complete your work immediately, we will do so.
Customers should expect that we'll begin your project within two weeks, although we are delighted to discuss your project immediately which will trigger our creative process to solve your assignment.
All projects vary in scope and duration. The more comprehensive the longer it will take to accomplish. If you need minor signs for an event, it could be only a few days time. Exhibition projects take several months to accomplish up to a year. Re-orders of previously designed items are the shortest turnaround in a week or two. For planning purposes, it is best to allow two weeks for minor requests (as a minimum).
Certain sign products have 6 to 8 week lead times for production. We can give you a better answer once we've discussed your request.
We can illustrate concepts so there are no surprises.
