ORDERING HELP

What is your production time?

Most production times are listed on each individual product. If you have a specific in hands need, please contact customer service.

Remember, production time is not shipping time! We still need to ship the item to you and that takes time. If you are in a rush, we suggest you choose an upgraded shipping option at checkout.

We ship all orders together complete. So, if you choose a 24 hour rush item and an item that takes 2 weeks to produce, you are going to be unhappy when your rush item is held up. Please make two orders if you need something faster with the benefit of our low standard shipping price.

A production day is an actual business day and not a weekend day. Any order placed after 1 pm CST will count as the next business day.
If you have questions or are up against a tight deadline, please contact us BEFORE you place your order regarding exact time lines.

Even items that are not personalized, may need to be ordered, so contact us first if you are needing something right away.

We are offering RUSH service on many of our gift items. What this means is that what typically may take 7 - 10 business days to arrive at our facility, will now be rushed shipped to us to cut your waiting time in half.

Production times are not guaranteed. If we fail to meet your deadline, we will be happy to credit you back the rush fees.
