Ordering Process

To place an order, contact us directly or fill out the quote request form. We will need to know some basic information about your job to get started. Please Note: $15 is currently the minimum order charge.

Project Name: This doesn't have to be an official title, just something that will identify the job. It could be as simple as "Bob's Retirement Party Invitations" or "Yard Sale Flyers."


Project Details: Tell us what you're looking for. Do you need color flyers, a black and white poster, a program booklet, business cards? The more details you can provide, the better, but don't worry if you don't know all of the details, like paper type. Our representatives will talk with you about your options and help identify any requirements you are not sure about.

Here are some things to consider as you pull together your project details:

  • Do you need printing on one side or both sides of the paper?
  • Do you need black and white or color printing?
  • What is the size of your printed item?
  • Do you want glossy paper, matte paper, thick card stock, or something different?
  • Will your product need to be folded (for example, a greeting card or an event program can be folded horizontally or vertically)
  • Do you need pages bound together?
  • Do you need perforation, numbering, or other finishing services?
  • Will you be able to create the design/artwork by yourself, or will you need our graphic artists to help?

Quantity: How many finished items do you need? If you are making a program or a booklet, how many pages should it have?


Other Considerations: If there is a certain date by which you need your printed materials completed, please be sure to let us know up front so we can do our best to accommodate your schedule. If you or your organization have ordered from the Stripes Printshop in the past, please let us know, as we may be able to reference past jobs in our files. If you have a sample of your job (such as a copy of an event program from last year that you'd like to update for this year), please let us know that, as well, so we can do our best to create the product exactly as you want it done.

If you are not sure about your order specifications, don't worry; send us the details you do have and we will help you with the rest!

Turnaround Time

If you have a question and can't find an answer here, please contact us.

The standard turnaround time after receiving the final design files and the customer's approval to print is 10 working days. However, many jobs can and will be completed faster than that. We can often accept "rush orders," but there may be an additional fee for that service. When a job requires our graphic artists to design or modify the artwork, there may be an additional time requirement, as well as artist fees. When you speak with one of our Stripes Printshop representatives, they will inform you of any extra time or costs involved in your order.

The 10-day standard turnaround time does not include shipping time. Our representatives will explain your shipping options when you place your order. Shipping costs will vary based on distance, method and speed of delivery, and product weight.
