How long does Screen Printing take?

Turn Times:

  • are set on a job-by-job basis and communicated by Amplifier Client Service;
  • are estimates we strive to hit, not guarantees;
  • depend on the availability of blanks upstream;
  • vary based on press availability;
  • begin only once you approve and pay a Sales Order and provide all final art, instructions, and order details, and also
  • require that you promptly approve digital proofs and/or (remote) press checks as requested by Amplifier Client Service. Any lags can delay production. In addition, any changes to original parameters can also extend the turnaround time required.

Typical turn times:

  • are 8 to 10 business days for Standard Art (up to 15" x 17"), one-location prints;
  • increase 2 to 3 days for each additional print location;
  • may increase also 1 to 2 days for each finishing process as well as for Make Ready;
  • do not apply during the runup to the Q4 Holiday Season. Early coordination is strongly advised during late summer's run up to the holiday period.
