This map is for drop shipment orders to other parts of the state. If you are in the Phoenix area, all shipment orders will come directly to the GP office for review. Drop shipment orders can be used if you want to ship a large quantity to an address that is different from yours. You may also use the "drop shipment" method on re-occuring orders. We are confident that after we have approved the first shipment that each shipment thereafter will be satisfactory because your book is stored on a template, and cannot be changed unless we at GP make any changes. You will be notified of any changes made to your book (if any). Please contact us for all shipment questions.
Map of SHIPPING TIME for UPS Ground service:
Once you have completed the Author/Publisher Session, and we have the approval of your manuscript by you the Author, then your material will be tramsmitted to our printer. It takes the printing company 2 business days to print the book. At the end of the second day of printing, the books will be shipped to Griot Publishing for review before distributing them to you if you live in the Phoenix area. If you do not live in Phoenix, your books will be shipped directly to you. The "2 DAY" clock starts ticking when you APPROVE YOUR MANUSCRIPT. We count regular business days (no weekends, no holidays), and each day's cut-off is 12:00 pm EST. Any approvals after12:00 pm EST will be counted as the following day.
Example: If you OK your proof Monday at 11:45 pm EST, your books will ship Wednesday. But if you wait 20 minutes longer and don't OK your proof until 12:05 pm EST on Monday, the approval will be counted as Tuesday, so your books won't ship until Thursday.
Perfect Bound book production will adhere to the the schedule above. Hard cover and Coil Binding take a little longer. They have a 5-day PRODUCTION TIME. And you'll still need to add SHIPPING TIME to that. For example, if you OK your hard cover or coil bound books on Monday, Your books will ship on the following Monday. See the map above for your shipping time. Expedited shipping (Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air) is also available.
