- When you need the quote back. We typically return quotes back in 48 hours. If you have to get the quote in a rush, tell us so we can make sure we meet your needs.
- Quantities needed is critical information. If you need a small sample run before the production run. Please let us know so we can prepare the quote correctly. If you are not sure the exact quantity you need, perhaps ask for several optional price breaks such as 100/200/300 pieces.
- Delivery time needed. If you need a specific dock date, let us know when you submit the drawing(s). We will make every effort to meet or exceed your needed dock date. If you don’t have a specific date needed, you may just ask for best delivery time. Typically this is about 3 weeks.
