Holiday Shipping Schedule

The Holiday's Are Fast Approaching!

This page will keep you informed of delivery schedules and when our workshop annex will be closed. We want everyone to receive their goodies in time for celebrating, so as the saying goes:

“Shop Early And Beat The Rush!”

This Is Not A Guarantee, Have A Backup Plan

The schedule below is a guideline, not a guarantee.

While we do our best to get all orders printed and shipped as quickly as possible, there are things that we have no control over that can negatively impact delivery timelines. We recommend placing your order as soon as possible to ensure you have the best chances of meeting your holiday deadlines.

Don’t Wait Until The Last Minute

When ordering, please know each order requires a manufacturing period and a ship period. Average manufacturing times are listed below, however keep in mind that they can change due to the large holiday volume!

Softcover manufacturing time takes between 4-6 business days*

Hardcover manufacturing time takes between 5-7 business days*

Special product manufacturing time takes between 5-10 business days*

Please check back frequently for updates and last minutes adjustments to the schedule!

Did not arrive according to the timeline

by Nick Palombo, 25 Dec 2019 (06:49 UTC)
Ordered a photo book on December 12. It did not come in time for Christmas as listed on the chart above. Paid about the same for shipping as I did for the book (~$60) to receive the product in time. It still hasn’t arrived..... Huge disappointment - do not follow the above guideline. Don’t fall for their “last call to place an order to receive by Christmas” email scam like I did.

Production during Holidays

by Gabriel Kaprielian, 16 Dec 2010 (06:41 UTC)
If I place a softcover order on Monday December 20th, can I still expect that it will be produced within 6 business days during the Holiday season and shipped out by Tuesday December 28th?

Re: Production during Holidays

With the holiday rush its hard to say when things will go into production and when things will ship. This schedule is based on receiving the book by Christmas. With your order being needed by the 28th, it would be cutting it VERY close. It would also depend on binding and method of shipping.

Have a great day, please let us know if you have any other questions!

Happy Holidays!

Holiday expediting

I was wondering when the last day to submit an order for expediting during the holidays will be, in order to receive it by Christmas? My order will be 3 8.5" x 11" Softcover books of 50 pages each.
