Please comment on the presentation folder. The printing will be on white and glossy foler. I would like to have it finished and ready because the printing company takes 3 business days for color proofing and 10 business days to produce 250 copies.

Folder? Paper? Otherwise it looks fine. You could also say, "on glossy white".

Hi Nancy,

the use of the verb take in this context seems unusual to me. In the context of your sentence, takes stands for an amount of time that is needed, and therefore I would prefer to use a different verb:

...because the printing company needs / requires 3 business days...

You could use the verb take, but it would then have to take this form:

It takes 3 days for the color proofing to be finished. Or maybe: It takes 3 business days for the printing company to color proof your order, and 10 business days to produce 250 copies. Note: I think this last sentence is correct but somewhat complicated. Could other readers please give their opinion?

Lastly, in a different context you could say "The printing company takes your order by phone", but then takes stands for accepts or receives.

You may find some more example sentences in your dictionary. In my Longman, there are 33 entries for 'take' !

I hope this is of help,
