  • Standard Orders

    We typically ship all stocked (non-custom) item orders within 1-3 business days. During peak business months(Jan.- May) it is more likely to require 3-6 business days to assemble your order. You will be notified if your order will exceed 6 business days for processing. See below for orders including custom items and mounting services.

  • Custom Items

    Printing, customizable patterned items, monograms, save the dates, thank you cards, etc… Anything that is printed requires 4-8 business days for processing.

  • Mounting Services

    Mounting services add an additional 2-4 days onto the processing time. (Mounting can usually only be done once all printed pieces are completed). Orders with Custom/printed items and mounting can require 6-10 business days to complete.

  • Rush Orders

    Please use the 'special order instructions' field during checkout if you would like to specify a deadline. This helps us to understand your specific needs more clearly and communicate any possible delays.

    We do not offer “rush services.” Please see our shipping service upgrade options during checkout to speed up final delivery time. Orders with expedited shipping services receive a priority status during processing.
