What is the turnaround time to make Plants Map signs and tags?
Our average turnaround time from Plants Map receiving the initial order for tags and signs to shipment of the order is between 10 and 20 days. It is often much faster and in the very best case, if the order comes in and the proof is approved the next day, we'll print and ship the following day.
We find that the proofing and approval process takes the longest time. Our staff will return a proof of the order with two business days. We will work with customers on edits to the proof and wait until approval of the proofs before we begin printing. This proofing process can be as fast as a simple "Looks good, go ahead and print" email if the order was submitted perfectly. However, when multiple people need to edit the proof and give approval, that can add time to the process.
Having said that, once the proof is approved things move very quickly and we usually make the signs and tags within the next 1-2 business days.
We ship via either USPS or FedEx.
We can produce about 250 signs per day and 500 tags per day in our office and we have relationships with other people with engravers to handle larger orders when needed.
