Turnaround Times

How long will it normally take to turn-a-round your project?
While each project is unique, PageMaster has standard turnaround times to help you determine when you need to get your project files in to us. For projects with supplied print files, these times assume that complete, compliant files are sent to us and revisions are not required. Extra design time and revisions are the most common delays for a job.

E-books and distribution are found under "books plus".

PageMaster’s team will confirm your new or reordered job via e-mail. If you don’t get a response before the end of the next working day something is wrong. You can check your projects status on our client portal.

We will contact you when a job is ready for pickup. If you have not been contacted for a pick up, please call before coming to pick up a job.

Rush Projects:

We try to avoid rush projects, as they compromise workflow efficiency and have a much higher error rate.

If a project must be completed in less than the time standards (see above) a rush charge of 10% will be assessed unless prior arrangements have been made. “Do it next” status is subject to a 20% surcharge and “stop and do this now” status is subject to a 30% surcharge.

PageMaster is committed to helping our clients. However, due to potential complications, rush jobs are not guaranteed. 24 hours gives sufficient time to sort out issues with bad files, font issues, printer difficulties or other potential problems which may not be possible on a rush job.

    Hello PM,
    I would like to request a quote for 50 calendars for the year 2018 (9-1/2″ wide x 16-1/2″ long when opened and, e.g., hanging on the fridge) stapled and using standard paper stock for calendars.
    Please note: If a slightly different size works better with your stock, I think that may be suitable, too.
    I expect to be able to deliver the thumb drive – or file – with the images, ready for printing in 2 or 3 weeks (my grand daughter is working on it now).
    If you would, please, have a quote that includes shipping and one that is for pick-up (I, or family members occasionally come to Edmonton and could pick it up).

    Thank you – Ted Haas (blueturtlebooks).

      Hi Ted
      The size is good — we would print on 11×17, 12×18 or 13×19 and some trim and margin is usually necessary (unless there are white borders). 80# matte Blazer is our standard stock for calendars. We like to proof things. If your timeline supports it we could print one copy and mail it before the full run. It the time is tight sending over a test page may be a good idea. The estimate was sent directly.
