Orders placed through the Build Your Own application follow a strict engineering process to maximize quality and minimize customer lead times and costs. The total lead time to ship your product after order acceptance is 18-25 days, depending on what day of the week your order is accepted. If you pay online your order is accepted immediately. If you pay via check your order is not accepted until payment clears.
If you choose not to have us manufacturer your product we will send you design and manufacturing files within 5 calendar days after the date of order acceptance. If you plan to manufacturer your product we strongly recommend you check the box to include manufacturing.
We are able to fabricate and assemble boards with incredible cost efficiency due to our volume, negotiated prices and panelization of multiple Build Your Own products into a single manufacturing order.
If you do check the box to include manufacturing we will include your designs in the next available manufacturing run. We start manufacturing panels of orders every Thursday at 9:00 AM Mountain Time. Orders accepted before Tuesday at 9:00 AM Mountain Time will start manufacturing on Thursday. Orders accepted after Tuesday at 9:00 AM will start manufacturing one week after the next Thursday.
Throughout the design process online you'll be able to see the expected ship date in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Below you can see a diagram that shows the 7 day ordering window for each round of weekly manufacturing.
Please note, if you include both stock products and a Build Your Own product your stock products will ship immediately and your Build Your Own product will ship upon arrival at our Denver, CO facility.
