Where will your job be printed?
- If your job can be completed within the print shop’s ability, it will be printed on campus. This decision is based on many factors; quantity, price and delivery time are the most important. Otherwise, a job will be sent off campus to a print vendor (generally black and white, simple 2-color, small quantity full-color jobs can be done in-house).
- Because not all printers can do all jobs with equal skill, CPDS chooses the off-campus printer best suited to the design, quality, budget, and deadline of your job. We will do ALL bidding, correspondence with the printer and purchase orders. Your account will then be charged back when the project is complete.
- Printing off-campus usually takes 5 to 10 working days, depending on the complexity of the publication. Any changes made after the job has been sent to the printer may increase your cost significantly.
