Frequently Asked Questions - Ordering

Our ISO 9002 standards specify our boards must conform to IPC-A-600 Class 2.


What is the deadline to get a job going?

We need to have complete job files and authority to proceed, usually in the form of a purchase order or email authorization, by 10:00 AM Pacific (PST) time for that day to count as a working day for the board production. So, if we have files and a go-ahead for a 5 day turn by 10 AM Monday morning, the boards would be ready by the end of the day on the following Friday. This is for turns of 5 days or more. Weekends do not count as working days.


How does timing for quick turn jobs work?

For quickturn jobs of 5 days or more, see above answer. For turns of less than 5 days, it works on a 24 hour basis, so a 3 day turn would be 72 hours, a 2 day turn 48 hours, and a 1 day turn is 30 hours. If we begin production at 11 AM Monday morning for a 2 day turn, the order should be ready by 11 AM Wednesday morning. Weekends do not count as working days.


What is OMNI's credit policy / can I pay by credit card?

Yes, Omni does accept payment by Credit Card and our credit terms are as follows:

  1. Terms for first order are Cash in Advance (CIA) for orders greater than $500. Future orders may be Cash on Delivery (COD) or Net 30.
  2. To apply for credit, the customer needs to fill out a Credit Application form. We need three trade references from other suppliers. Rental, Insurance and solicitors are not generally considered trade references.
  3. It takes up to 5 business days to process a Credit application. Incomplete applications will delay the credit process.
  4. If credit is not established when the product is ready for shipment, shipping will be held until credit is approved or payment is received.
  5. Accounts exceeding the granted credit limit must be paid down immediately or the orders in production will be held up.
