Formulas for turnaround estimates
If you'd like to calculate a more specific estimate than what is listed above, you can use the following formulas to do so. Please keep in mind that we consider a page to be 250 words/numbers or less, one-sided, and standard 8.5" x 11" dimensions or smaller. Each page is counted individually and it is not based on a cumulative total.
- First, divide the total number of pages by 4
- Next, divide the total number of pages by 3
- These two results (rounded up) will give you an estimated turnaround range
- First, divide the total number of words in your order by 250
- Next, round this number up to determine the page count equivalent
- Use the same formula as certified orders (above) to calculate your estimated turnaround range
Your order contains 4,333 words
4333/250=17.33, round to 18
18/4=4.5, round to 5
Your estimated turnaround is 5 to 6 days
