FAQ

What is your normal scheduling?

Our normal turnaround time for regular work at the bindery is from three to five weeks, depending on the time of year. We also offer a one week Rush service. We schedule shipment pickups and deliveries for our routine customers that bind on a regular basis and are usually done on an exchange basis.

 

 

Is it okay to mix products in a shipment box?

It’s ok to mix products in a box as long as you wrap each kind of product together and identify it, but please mark on the outside of the box so we know it’s a mixed box. Don’t forget to fill out our Bindery Shipment Form.

 

 

How should I ship my books to you?

Lay the item flat in the carton whenever possible. You may pack lightweight books vertically with the spine down to fill leftover spaces in the box. Fill the box completely and add plenty of packing paper on the sides. If your items don’t fill the box add scrap cardboard so the box doesn’t get crushed when other boxes are stacked on top of it by the shipper. Remember, the shipper will stack the pallet four boxes high, so be sure to add the extra material to fill the box completely so the items inside don’t get crushed. Fill out your library’s name and address on a label and place the new label on the carton. Please be sure to fill in the box sequence numbers, for example: Box number 2 of 14. Be sure to circle the category of material at the bottom of the label: PER. MONO. MYLAR

 

 

How Will you ship my books back?

We contract with commercial carriers for out of state shipping. We will send you flat cartons, tape and labels for the cartons. Pack one copy of the Bindery Shipment Form in one carton and note “Shipping Form included” on that carton.
