For standard orders, we generally ship laser cut parts within 2-4 business days of receiving your cut-ready files. Additional post-process operations such as bending, tapping and powder coating will increase turnaround time.
Our cut-off time for processing new orders is 12 noon, Pacific time, Monday-Friday. (Orders with complex geometry or multiple bends may require additional processing time.) Orders received after 12:01 PM will be started the following business day.
If you see “TBD” on the tracking page for your order, your files are being reviewed and prepped for the laser. An estimated shipping date will be generated in the Tracker once your order is scheduled. Learn more about our shipping process and policies.
Although we cut and process parts 7 days a week, we review orders Monday – Friday to coincide with our shipping carriers.
Powder coating, Anodizing, and Plating – Adds 7-10 days of processing time to your order.
Quantity – Quantities of 100 or more parts may add 2-4 days of processing time to your order.
Weight – Some orders over 80 lbs. will need an additional 1-2 business days for packaging and crating.
Size – Parts larger than 46” in any axis may need 1-2 or more additional days of processing time.
Bending – Adding bending to your order can add 1-3 days of processing time. Most bent parts will ship ground as they will exceed 2″ in height when packed.
Material – Although we stock hundreds of thousands of pounds of material, occasionally we may have a smaller-than-needed amount for your project. If your order requires more than 40 square feet of material, we may ask for an additional 2-5 business days for processing.
Design – We will contact you to request revisions for orders that require file adjustments, proofs, or files do not meet our Design Guidelines. This will delay the order processing, as production cannot begin until we have received the cut-ready files.
Finishing – Ceramic Tumbling adds 2-3 days of processing time.
