Holiday Deadlines

2017 Holiday Shipping Guide

We will continue to print all the way up through December 22 so we do not technically have any official cut-off dates for orders shipping to addresses in the United States. We do suggest that you place your orders as soon as possible so that you can be prepared for any potential delays. The most important thing to consider are our In Lab Turnaround times, which are published to give you a timeline for how long your orders will take us to produce. Once an order is shipped, the shipping selection you make will be the last determining factor in how quickly you receive your order.

You can sign in to your account at any time on the website to check your orders progress.  

Orders placed on or before December 21st can still be delivered before Christmas with expedited shipping. The deadlines listed below are for Standard Shipping selections, so please keep in mind that you can place your orders after these dates and still receive them before Christmas as long as you upgrade to a 2nd Day or Overnight shipping service. Shipping upgrades will not affect how long an order takes to be produced in lab or guarantee that they will move any faster in production than the published turnaround time, but they will help with delivery after an order is completed.  

Free Studio Shipping to an Address in the United States 

Based on the in lab time needed to produce your order, and our 1-3 Business Day Free Studio Shipping, you will want to make sure your orders are placed by the dates listed below if you are in a 3 day zone. The map will outline where your studio address lands within our 1-3 day shipping zones, so if you are in a 2 Day or 1 Day zone you can extend your deadline by 24 or 48 hours, respectively.
