2020 Christmas Shipping Guide

Oct 30th 2020

Each of our icons is hand-crafted just for you, and we are busy during the Christmas season. If you have an important deadline, consider ordering earlier rather than later.

Note: These are estimates based on the maximum allowable time to ship. We are currently running well ahead of this schedule, and orders placed after these dates may arrive in time, but these are the deadlines for guaranteed delivery. In the event of a regional or statewide pandemic-related shutdown, these dates will be impacted. Don't wait till the last minute.

    The official deadline for guaranteed Christmas delivery of icons is now past.
