Moving Forward Avoiding the Puddles

We urge you to plan ahead as much as possible. We’ll work with you to develop a realistic production schedule that includes realistic turn around times for your staff and for us. We make every effort to meet your deadline or help you with an unexpected need, but we can’t always squeeze you in at the last minute. We realize, of course, that life is life, and we all need to make adjustments at times.

One of the things we’ve found very helpful is meeting with clients at the beginning of their annual budget-building process and when the staff is thinking about their outreach strategy for the coming year or the coming six months. Working with our clients at this critical point means we can not only give them an idea of costs, but we can have a preliminary schedule that makes everyone’s work load a little more reasonable.
