Shipping Information

When you place your order, you have a wide selection of options when it comes to shipping your packages. Here is some helpful information about our packaging and shipping.


Shipping to an address in the United States

When shipping to an address in the United States, you have the option of shipping through the US Postal Service or UPS. When you add items to your shopping cart, we will automatically choose the least expensive shipping method for your packages. If you would prefer to upgrade the shipping method, you can always change it from the View Cart page.

If you are ordering 1-3 individual greeting cards you will have the option of having a First Class stamp attached to the envelope. If you are delivering the card(s) to yourself, the cards and envelopes will be placed inside another envelope for shipping purposes. If you are delivering the card directly to the recipient, the card will be placed inside the accompanying envelope and mailed. A single greeting card weighing 1 oz. or less can be sent using a First Class stamp for $0.60.

The First Class with Tracking shipping option includes a non-bendable mailer or shipping box to protect your items along with USPS package tracking.

Orders that are received before 2:00PM EST will be processed on the same day. If you have requested personalization on larger quantities (i.e. - boxed cards) your order will be delayed by 3 business days.

For 1-3 individual cards you have the option of using a USPS First Class stamp to ship the cards. If shipping to yourself, the cards and envelopes will be placed inside another envelope.

If you are delivering a single personalized greeting card to someone else as a gift, it will be sealed in its envelope, stamped, and sent directly to the recipient. You have the option of adding your return address to the envelope. If you are sending a gift along with the card, the gift and greeting card will placed inside another package and sent to the recipient.

When ordering individual greeting cards, you will also have the option to ship using USPS First Class with Tracking. All of your items will be placed in a non-bendable mailer or shipping box for protection. This option also includes tracking through the USPS so you can follow the progress of the package at all stages.

All other shipping options include non-bendable mailers or shipping boxes.

Order Tracking

Once your package has left one of our fulfillment centers (Buffalo, NY or Mankato, MN), you will receive an email message confirming the shipment.

If you have selected a shipping method that offers tracking (i.e.-UPS), you will receive a tracking number that can be used to follow the progress of your order. If you have created an account, you can also log into your account to view the order status.
