Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy


We work to process and ship you order as fast as possible. Since our products are personalized to your specifications, the order may take a few days before it ships. We strive to get orders out within 2-4 days. Even if you choose rush shipping, the item still needs to be made before it ships to you so it usually will ship out the day after ordering. 


After your order leaves our studio, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you select during checkout and the location of your shipping address. Please note that business days are Monday-Friday, they do not included federal US holidays. Please contact us below with questions or if you need a gift by a certain date. 


Delivery


We have several options for shipping your purchase. Depending on the item, there are different speeds and charges for your purchased item.  We do offer expedited shipping. Our handling time still may apply. You can email us to see how quickly we can ship the item you need.  Please note, during holidays the USPS will not guarantee Express delivery (usually a 1-2 day service). Priority mail is typically a 3-5 delivery time. If sent via the USPS first class (economy rate), your package will generally arrive four to seven business days after it is shipped. Most items ship within 3-4 business days.  You will receive an email when your order ships and information on your tracking number. You can also log into your customer account anytime and check the status.
