Shipping and Returns
How Long Will It Take for Your Order to Ship
All of our products are made to order (All orders are custom), right here in the USA and not sourced from overseas like our competitors business models. Although we take more time and care to make your product exceptional, we still manage to get our product delivered in a timely manner. After placing your order, expect a 5-10 business day lead time before the delivery process starts. Often times customers may receive their product prior to the 5-10 business day shipping lead time, but due to busy seasons we have instituted this lead time for our customers to anticipate all year. We ship all of our orders Fed-Ex 2 daywithin the 50 states and you will receive a track number via email when the order has been shipped. Anyone who can make a custom product and ship it in two days is obviously sending you a pre-packaged item that was imported. Our lead times take into consideration our order volumes along with the time it takes to properly dry the vinyl after the printing process and then the hands on care of sewing the product together. You can always learn about our manufacturing process here.
