Our production turnaround shown in various key stages
DIGITAL PROOF - Returned to you in 4-7 working days for our standard 60 page book
The timing is based on receiving all your materials in the correct format to enable our production. Any prolonged communication will most likely cause delay.
Our Digital Proof production will only commence after receiving non-refundable £200 processing fee, which is 100% deductible towards your Final Order payment.
ORDER PRODUCTION - Takes 7 to 14 days from receiving both your order and partial or full payment by BAC
Subject to confirmation of your finalised Digital Proof, you can place your order and an invoice will be emailed to you.
We typically require 50% of your invoice to be paid before we can start your order production, and the remaining within 7 days from receiving your goods. Your 1st payment is always no less than the minimum of 60 copies, this means if your order is 100 copies, you will be required to pay for 60 copies, and if your order just meets the minimum, you will have to pay the entire invoice.
