1. “What is my account number?”

  • Your account number is a 3-digit number we use when invoicing your jobs. If you don’t already know it, you can enter “???” in this box, and we’ll email it to you. If you use AutoFill when filling out the form, you should only need to enter it once. This is to assist with billing and getting your items back to you faster!

2. “How do I create a ReproConnect login?”

  • If you go to www.bdsvaplanroom.com and click the “Register for an account” link on the bottom-left of the page, you’ll be able to create an account there that can then be used to log in either at our Send A File page, or using the ReproConnect software shortcut on your desktop. Please note – you don’t have to do this to be able to submit jobs via ReproConnect; you can also simply fill out the form on our site, without having to have an account.

4. “What format can I submit files in?”

  • Our preferred format is PDF, but you can also submit JPEGS, InDesign files, PowerPoints, Illustrator files, Word documents and more. If we encounter issues with your original file type, we’ll work with you to get a version that works.

5. “What are your prices for pickup and delivery?”

  • Regular pickup and delivery within the Southside and Peninsula areas are free of charge. If we are delivering your job to another location, or if the job is delivery-only, pricing is dependent on distance. We can also ship your items via Fedex or UPS, and keep your shipping numbers on file for future use.

6. “Where can I give specific instructions about my job?”

  • If you scroll down at the right side of the form, a box labeled “Additional Instructions” will appear, where any information not already covered on the form can be added. You can also send us an email at digital@bdsva.com .

7. “What if I don’t have a company name, or if the job I’m sending is for me personally?”

  • You can type “Personal” or something similar into that field. If you usually work with us through a company, let us know! We always like knowing how our customers hear about us, and if needed, we can coordinate a delivery to your usual place of business.
