Here's the short version:
- The USPS is a mess because the people in charge of it want to kill it.
- Even without rich Republicans messing things up we're still in a global pandemic and global shipping is a bloody mess.
- Therefore, I cannot guarantee that an order will arrive before 12/25 or any other special date in December!
- But I'll do my absolute best to make sure your package goes out ASAP!
Here's a longer version:
The USPS publishes a set of deadlines for shippers every year, listing the last dates that a package must ship by for it to arrive in 12/25. This year the deadline is 12/17 for most of the US and 11/29 for everywhere else.
This does NOT mean that if you order by that date your package will arrive before 12/25! Depending on what and when you order, it will take anywhere between a day and a week to process. For example: pins that we have in stock get packaged super quick, while things like necklaces may take a day for assembly, and custom ornaments take upwards to week to design and make.
This is all to say that, just like many things in These Times, shipping is a mess. So I absolutely cannot guarantee that packages will arrive before any special date you have in mind in December.
That said, I will do my absolute best to process orders as quickly as possible and will be shipping more often in the coming weeks to make sure that your orders will get to you as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your support, and your understanding! <3
