Welcome to NPS Printing Services Ordering Site
Order Turnaround Time
Please note that the two week turnaround time which is automatically built in to every order is a goal of ours, it is not a guaranteed date that you will receive your order. Significant delays may be experienced during times of heavy usage by our customers, every order is important to us. Please know that all printing orders are processed in the order which they are received.
TRACK YOUR PRINTING ORDERS
You may track your orders through the production process from beginning to end. While logged into your account, click on "My Orders", find the order that you are interested in and look at the last column "Status". If your order status is "Submitted, it means that we have not yet put it into production.
- Copying: We have state of the art copying equipment with the capacity to print both color and black only copies. Our equipment also has the capability of inserting your color pages into most black only publications.
- Color Copying: Please note that all color copies are chargeable to your school/department at a rate of .05 cents per each side of paper printed, plus the cost of the paper. The GL Code (general accounting ledger code) to which the color copies will be invoiced must appear on the printing order in the billing and delivery section for GL Code. See your school or department manager for the correct GL Code.

EMBED YOUR FONTS
When composing documents be sure to embed the fonts into the document. I would venture to say that any composition program has a way to embed the fonts. If you type "Embed Fonts" into the help search of most programs, it will show detailed instructions on how to do so.
File Attachment/PDF Conversion
During the order process, when you attach your file, it will automatically be converted into a PDF. You will then have the opportunity to proof the PDF, ensuring that everything is correct before proceeding with the next step. Please note that if you decline the PDF, your original file will be uploaded with the print order. We will then convert your file and initiate a proofing process with you.
Please note that any scanned items inserted into your publications, in most cases, will not reproduce in a high quality manner.
