Keeping Lead Times Short
How is my order Build / Lead Time calculated?
Online orders will either have a 12:00 p.m. PST (PCBExpress® Quickturn, ValueProto or PCB123®) or 2:00 p.m. PST (Full Feature) cutoff time. Business days are counted as build days. Weekends and holidays are not counted as build days.

- Day 1: Monday 12 PM through Tuesday 12 PM.
- Day 2: Tuesday 12 PM through Wednesday 12 PM.
Your order will ship Wednesday afternoon.
Full Feature Lead Time Example
