Items are handmade and require processing time to create unique original designs, generally from 1-2 business days before shipping, larger orders may require more 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 (although Priority Shipping does not guarantee a specific delivery time). USPS and UPS Two and Three Day Shipping Options do not ship immediately and still require processing time. If you have concerns regarding time frame clarification on rush orders please email email@example.com before ordering.
