Prepare for a Smooth Holiday Shopping Season with these tips and updates.


It’s best to plan ahead when ordering personalized gifts and custom holiday cards. The holiday season adds volume to the system requiring not only additional time to make your item but also for it to be shipped/received. Orders can take 7-10 business days to be produced.

Please see below for important holiday dates for 2023.

Production Timelines

Production timelines are 7-10 business days for all personalized orders. Please note that due to increased volume during the holiday shopping season, those timelines get stretched to the max. 

Certain items in the shop will ship separately from stationery items. Included in that list are the following:

  2. Keychains
  3. Pencil Pouches
  4. Hand Towels
  5. Coasters
  6. Vinyl Stickers

Should your order contain a mix of personalized stationery and gifts, you will receive multiple shipping notifications based on the varying production times of the items in your order.

Rush Orders

A rush order fee is not available at this time. Please plan accordingly.

Standard shipping is USPS ground advantage with tracking. Faster shipping options are available during check out but please note this will only decrease the time it takes for the item to ship from me to you. It will not decrease the production time.

Please review the shipping policy for additional details on how to handle delivery issues. It's important to note that once the package is picked up by USPS, it is in USPS custody and there is very little I can do to help provide answers. The same applies to orders shipped via UPS.
