Marketing Communications Project Timelines

We want your project to be a success. To achieve this, we request sufficient time for concept development, editing, design, and review. The following table provides estimated timelines for completion of various projects—from the point of submission to completed product. Please submit your project request with these timelines in mind.

Please note: These time estimates are based on reviews being completed within two business days each. If reviews are not completed and returned within that timeframe, a new completion date will be set.
