12. How does your turnaround time work?

Each product has a specific turnaround time listed on the product page. Production time begins the day after you submit your order. If you order multiple products with various production times, we ship items as they leave the press, not as a bulk. You may receive your products you ordered at different times, not at once. Please use your online account to check the status of your order - do not call our office asking where your order is and when you will receive it. We have provided the automated system to keep you informed on the status of your order.

13. Can I get the files I want and have them printed by a local printer near me?

No. We have exclusive use rights to the files you see on the site. If you require to have a file to print at a local printer for faster speeds, you will need to pay for the design fee for the respective item and we will customize the file for you and send you a print ready PDF. The fees for each item vary based on the product itself. You must allow up to 4 days for editing of the file you pay for. (What you see in the design editor program are not distributed files, they are created in the designer and we do not have the ability to send you files from the program.) 


14. I want to place an order but I can't figure out how to use the site.

At this time, we do not take over the phone orders. All orders MUST come through the website. The only exception to this policy is for "Custom" projects or jobs. Due to the volume of orders we receive we must limit over the phone orders to custom jobs only.


15. How soon will I get my order?

Times vary. All product pages detail print production times, which are an estimate. The times listed on each page do not include shipping time. As a general rule most products take up to 10 days for printing and shipping. You can track the progress of your order in your account.


16. I paid for UPS but my order was shipped to me by FedEx, why?

Our online store is setup to use UPS and the program gets its pricing from UPS based on the total weight of your order. The vendor that prints our signs uses UPS and FedEx as their shippers and we do not have control of who they use to ship the sign products to you. The cost of using either one is the same.


17. I need you to make a correction on my product before you print it, can you do that?

YES we can. You will need to notify us by email or through the site messaging system  within 2 hours of your ordering with the changes you need to make. There is a $25 charge per product needing to be edited. For example, if you ordered business cards and postcards, you would have to pay $50 to have the edits made. This also may cause a delay of up to 4 days on your order while we schedule your order to be edited by one of our design staff. You will be emailed an invoice for the fee and it must be paid prior to production.


18. I have not received my order in the timeframe your site said I would get it, I would like to cancel my order and get a refund.

While we try to meet the timelines listed on our site, the timeframes are only an estimate of the average time it takes to produce a product. On rare occasions there are unforeseen instances that take a product longer to produce at our printing plants, such as a machine breakdown or inclement weather that causes the plant to be closed. Once an order has passed pre-press and has gone into production status, we can not cancel the order. If a refund is approved by management, it will be in the form of in house credit that can be used on our website.


19. Order Chargebacks

If you see the need to create a chargeback on your credit card because you are not pleased with the timeframe of your order, you will be required to still make the payment when you receive your products. This mainly pertains to franchisees who place large orders, receive their products and create a chargeback with their credit card company. Your account will be closed and banned from our server based on your IP address and we will notify your Franchisor of the fraudulent activity and they will not only collect the original amount from you, but also the fees Franchise Print Service had to pay suppliers to process your order. So please think carefully before placing an order or creating a chargeback. When we say all sales are final, we do mean final.
