Production & Transit Time
Production Time & Shipping Options may be viewed in each products calculator.
Production time varies by product and typically ranges between Next Business Day to 10 Business days depending on the product and quantity you are ordering. Once your order and proof approval have been received, production time is the number of business days it will take to process your order through our production department (not including any holidays during which our business would be closed.) Rush processing may be available - For example: 4 day Rush Processing – if you approve your proof on Monday's business day, your order would ship Friday. Note, because our business days are Mon-Fri, the same 4-day Rush Processing for a proof approved on Wed would result in the order being shipped on the following Tuesday. Production time does not include transit (shipping) time. If you are ordering postcards that are being delivered through the USPS directly to people's homes, you will determine the in-home dates by adding Production Time to Transit Time & then the following 1-3 business days will be your anticipated in-home dates.
Production Time Examples:
Orders placed Monday-Thursday after 6pm CST will be placed the following business day. Orders placed Friday after 6pm CST through Monday up to 6pm CST are considered to be received on Monday's business day.
Order Wednesday at 3:00 pm CST - selected Next Business Day Production Time with Next Day Air Shipping service.
Your order will ship Thursday via UPS Next Day Air and arrive to you Friday per ups.com delivery.
Order Saturday at 1:00 pm CST - select Next Business Day Production Time with Next Day Air Shipping service.
Your order will be received as Monday's order date and will ship Tuesday via UPS Next Day Air and arrive to you Wednesday per ups.com delivery.
Transit time varies depending on your location. Your options for shipping can range between Next Business Day AM delivery to Ground which can be up to 5 Business Days for delivery. Transit time is the number of business days it will take UPS to deliver your order. See the map below for regular outbound Ground UPS Service from our facility in Wichita, KS.
