Holiday Policies

Are you a last-minute shopper? A super-sale-finder? A wrapped-and-ready-to-go shopper? Maybe you’re a mixture of all the above. With the winter holidays quickly approaching, you might be thinking about last years buying experience, and possibly the stress of last minute gift shopping. This year, I’ll be doing things a little differently in the shop. I want to make your Holiday Shopping Experience as Stress-Free as possible by rolling-out our Shipping, Return, & Exchange Policies for you (way in advance!) The shop policies can also be found in the shop on our Holiday Policies page. I will keep it updated as time goes by.

Holiday Order Deadlines

To make sure that I can print, package, and ship all of your orders on time for the holidays, I’ve put together these deadlines. Any orders that come in after these deadlines can’t be guaranteed to arrive on time. Calculated for December 25, 2015. Shipping with USPS First-Class Mail.

United States Order Deadline: Tuesday, December 15th @ 11:55PM EST
Canada Order Deadline: Tuesday, December 1st @ 11:55PM EST
International Order Deadline: Tuesday, November 9th @ 11:55PM EST

Holiday Shipping Schedule

Want an idea of when your order will arrive? I can not control your order once it has been given to USPS. However, my shipping schedule below should be able to give you an idea on when you’re package will be shipped. Weather Permitting. You will be notified by email of any shipping delays on my part. I will be shipping all orders with a tracking number this season. After my trip to the post office, you’ll receive an email with your tracking number where you can follow your package’s shipping adventure.

Shopping on Tuesday or Thursday? Here are some notes to keep in mind. Tuesday orders placed after 5:00PM EST will be shipped on the following scheduled Friday/Saturday shipping day. Thursday orders placed after 5:00PM EST will be shipped on the following scheduled Wednesday shipping day.
