Why do designs that are printed or mailed have longer timelines?
For printed designs, UCM works with our partners in Printing Services to print, score, fold, and otherwise produce physical materials. Communication between teams, actual production work, and transportation of materials take time.
For mailed designs, UCM works with our partners in Mail Services to address and send mailers after the printing is done. Communication between teams, preparing items for the mail, and postal delivery take time.
In order to be good partners, we aim to give both partner teams a few weeks integrate our work into their workflows.
