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.


Quickturn Lead Time Example

An order with a two day build-time submitted on Monday before 12 PM PST:

  • 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

An order with a one week build-time (5 business days) submitted on Monday before 2 PM PST:

  • Day 1: Monday 2 PM through Tuesday 2 PM.
  • Day 2: Tuesday 2 PM through Wednesday 2 PM.
  • Day 3: Wednesday 2 PM through Thursday 2 PM.
  • Day 4: Thursday 2 PM through Friday 2 PM.
  • Day 5: Friday 2 PM through Monday 2 PM.

Your order will ship Monday afternoon.
