What sort of printing are you doing? Easter isn’t an enormous holiday here — at least, not like Christmas. Lots of candy and stuff like that, but not a lot of print.

But I am not a printer. Maybe there is a lot of it.

Tell me about it. I have a client that likes to get their quarterly magazine out before Easter every year, and every year they fail to make it because they don't get their copy to me in time. The same thing happens to them at Christmas, but last year we managed for the first time to get it done in time. I was hoping to repeat this for Easter, but the copy is still with them for some final editing. No hope at all of getting it out for Easter.

You should tell your client to make Ash Wednesday the deadline for copy; if they do, the magazine should be out by Maundy Thursday every year.
