We provide shipping via UPS.

We have a drop-off location for pre-packaged parcels at our Lebanon location. They can accept it with the pre-paid label already attached, or shipping can be processed and paid for on-site.

We do not accept UPS shipments at our Hanover location. Our friends at Hanover True Value/Hardware store do offer full UPS packaging and shipping services.

We do not sell shipping supplies, but we can have your printing order packaged and shipped to anywhere in the continental US.

Shipping price can only be determined after a job has been completed and packaged to ship. We will release a job to UPS once it has been paid for.

UPS automatically generates a free tracking number for your order!

We do not deliver to campus. We are, however, conveniently located just off Main Street just a couple blocks from the green!

Full-bleed refers to printing that goes right to the edge of the paper.

When submitting your print-ready PDF file for production, should your design require full-bleed, please ensure you’ve provided 1/8″-1/4″ bleed-space beyond your finish size so that we can print and cut to your bleed edge.

For example an 8.5×11″ full-bleed flyer would require an 8.625″x11.125″ or larger file.

Gnomon Copy can turn projects around based on three time-frames:

NOW – 24 Hours/Next-Day
LATER – 2-4 Business days
ECONOMY – 5+ Business days

Most projects can be completed within all three time-frames, but some projects, such as Perfect Binding require longer production times.

For PRESENTATIONS production jobs, please contact for more information.

We accept print-ready PDF files.
JPEG files are also typically okay for images, but not recommended.

We can print from some other file types (such as a .doc or .tiff,) but we do not guarantee the outcome of the printing after a non-PDF file has been converted into our PDF work flow.
There is also an up-charge for each file we have to convert to PDF.

PDF creation is standard across all modern computer platforms! On most PC’s or MAC’s you can simply choose File –>Save As and choose PDF or Adobe PDF as your preferred file type.

Alternatively, on some PC’s and almost all MAC’s you can also choose File–> Print –> Adobe PDF as your printer from the drop-down printer select menu.

Most smart phone and tablet platforms also include the ability to create PDFs, but please refer to your phone’s manual for further instructions.

We typically recommend PDF creation on a Laptop or Desktop platform, however.

Both Gnomon Copy locations are open from 8AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday.
