Holiday Tips and Reminders

It's December and there are only a few weeks left until the holidays! Here are some tips and reminders to make this holiday season as smooth as possible!

  • Turnaround Time: Keep in mind our published turnaround times. During these next few weeks, leave some extra time for any possible minor delays and place your orders as soon as possible to guarantee delivery by Christmas. We do not have any cut-off dates and all orders placed on or before December 23rd can be delivered on December 24th or before.
  • Shipping Upgrades and Rushes: Please note that adding overnight shipping does not guarantee your order will ship the same day. It only expedites the shipping method once the order is complete. A 100% rush may be available if you need to expedite the turnaround time of the order through the lab. Contact Customer Service if you would like a 100% Rush, which will double your order cost.
  • Order Instructions: Putting any instructions or notes on your order will delay it by at least one day as it will be sent to Customer Service to review your instructions or notes. Please review your order carefully before submitting it. If you need to expedite your order, contact Customer Service. Do not try to expedite your order through instructions of your order. This will only slow your order down and your instruction may get missed. Only pertinent information to your order should be put in the instructions such as trimming instructions.
  • Press Printed Cards and Full Spreads: When submitting a full spread, be sure to click "One Image, Spread over Crease" under size options in the lower left screen of ROES. If this option is not selected, only half of your image will print. Always check the thumbnail on the review order screen to make sure you have filled in all surfaces you want printed and that all files are in the correct openings.
  • Press Printed Cards and Safe Lines: The Safe Line in ROES is not the cut line for the cards. The cut happens between the Safe Line and the edge of the file. Anything inside the Safe Line will print on your card. Anything outside the Safe Line may or may not print on your card. Keep this in mind if a border is put on the outside of the Safe Line - it may arrive to you uneven and only printed on some sides.
  • Photographic Greeting Cards: We strongly recommend separating card orders from normal print orders. Orders with both Photographic Greeting Cards and normal prints are scheduled for an extra day in process. If you separate these orders, you should get them both back a day earlier than submitting them together.
  • Address and Credit Card: If you haven't placed an order with us in a while, make sure you have your most current shipping address on file with us before you place your order. You can update your shipping address by calling us at 800-252-5234 or emailing us at Also remember to keep your credit card information current so your orders are not delayed! You can update your credit card information easily online at Log in with your user name and password. On the left side of the screen is a link for "Account Info". Click there and you are able to update your credit card under the Payment Terms section.
  • Review order in ROES: When placing your order in ROES, please be sure to look over all of the items you've ordered in the Review Order Screen before you actually place the order. Make sure you've ordered the correct paper type, the correct finishing services, and the correct quantities. Also check the cost of the order. Make sure it is what you're expecting to pay for the order. Lastly, please remember that our Press Printed Cards come in sets of 25 cards. So, if you need 50 cards, you would order a quantity of 2.
