However, even those vendors are now facing paper shortages. The following bullets are being implemented immediately to help ensure that we are able to continue to serve YOU, our valued customers:

Are you accepting orders at this time? Yes, are are here to serve you with all your printing needs.
Can I expect that my order will arrive on time? We are doing our best to maintain our standard production times, but these are being impacted by shortage of materials, delays in deliveries, etc. Due to these unprecedented circumstances, we cannot guarantee a set production time for your order. Please allow an additional few days for production. Additionally, current delivery times cannot be guaranteed due to delays among major shipping carriers.
What do you suggest I do regarding my printing needs? We recommend taking regular inventory of your printed materials and place your orders a minimum of 2-3 weeks in advance. Please note that promotional items are experiencing even greater delays and shortages, for which we have no control. We will do everything we can to communicate any issues, shortages, and/or delays as we are advised by our trusted vendors.
Can I add rush production on my order? Not at this time. Due to increased demand and decreased resources, we have suspended any and all rush production availability. If you find yourself with a legitimate “emergency”, and not a failure to plan, we will try to accommodate your needs, but we regretfully retain the right to decline this concession being an option.
Are certain products, services, and paper stocks unavailable during this time period? Yes! Please take this into consideration when planning your orders and in-hand date. During this time of ongoing industry-wide developments and changes from vendors, please note that materials across all products may vary slightly. NOTE: Gloss paper has been impacted the most significantly and is the most difficult to find.
