Turnaround Times

When should I order for Christmas delivery?

After we receive your order, we custom-make your product (this is known as "turnaround time"). Please order as early as you can. We've included order cut-off dates alongside the product turnaround times below.

Are turnaround times guaranteed?

Turnaround times are not guaranteed and do not include shipping from the lab to you, weekends or holidays (so please factor-in additional days for those, too). While we do everything possible to maintain our estimated turnaround times, turnaround may lengthen due to credit card errors and increased order volume, especially during promotions and holidays. Contact us if you need to upgrade your shipping.

Is Christmas delivery guaranteed?

We cannot guarantee exact arrival dates as the ongoing pandemic has created supply challenges and shipping delays for all carriers. Contact us for estimated delivery windows provided by the carriers. Thank you for understanding and placing your orders as early as you can. We appreciate your business!


Turnaround Times by Product

Turnaround times are not guaranteed and do not include shipping from the lab to you, weekends, or holidays. If your order contains various products, the order will ship together according to the item with the longest turnaround time.

**NOTE: Turnaround has been impacted by supply and shipping challenges caused by the pandemic. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your continued patience. Questions? Contact us.
