Items are handmade and require processing time to create unique original designs, generally from 1-2 business days before shipping, larger orders may require additional time. USPS is a fast, efficient form of shipping and the most cost effective. Generally, if you are close to the Chicago, IL area, upgrading to Priority Shipping will not move the package any faster than First Class Shipping but helps for farther destinations. USPS Priority Shipping still requires processing time; the Postal Service does not guarantee priority shipping delivery time. If you have concerns regarding time frame clarification on rush orders please email [email protected] before ordering, we will be happy to accommodate when possible.
