Turnaround Times

Printing, Addressing & Mailing: From the time you okay the files for printing to the time your prospect receives your postcard by First Class lettermail, it can be as fast as 1.5 to 2 weeks in Ontario (Up to 3 weeks for national and rural delivery). We always ask that you allow a few extra days (if not a week) for some wiggle room in the production schedule and Canada Post's delivery service, especially if it's during busy periods from October to January. If your postcard is time sensitive [mission critical], allow up to 20 business days for everything to be completed which may or may not include Canada Post's delivery schedule (depending on delivery area).

Printing Only: Our production schedule for postcard printing is 2-4 business days if you okay the proof(s) by 10:30 a.m. on any day of the week from Monday-to-Friday. Allow additional time for delivery.

Addressing: Database setup, sorting and inkjet addressing on to the postcards takes an additioanl 2-5 business days after printing. Note that we do not provide direct mail as a standalone service unless we are also printing your postcards.

Canada Post: According to CPC's web site, the following service standards apply for delivery, i.e. how long it takes them to deliver mail to your prospect:

Local Service Standards, eg: Mississauga-to-Mississauga (or within the GTA)

2 - 3 business days

Service Standards within the same province, eg: Mississauga-to-Ottawa (or within Ontario)

4 - 5 business days

National Service Standards, eg: Mississauga-to-Vancouver (or anywhere within Canada, except for Rural areas)

4 - 13 business days


All prices, except postage, already include a 5% money order or business cheque discount. If paying postage by credit card, we will add 5% to your order for postage costs only. Canadian cheques require an additional 3-5 business days to clear before we process your order. Checks drawn on an American bank require 21-28 days to clear.
