Shipping & Delivery Information

Delivery to Myself

At PaperCards.com our goal is to provide the most convenient and time saving options for your greeting card, invitation, stationery and gift purchases. You have the option of ordering any number of cards, from a single card to any combination of items and quantities. During the checkout process you'll provide the delivery address so you can choose to send the items to yourself or directly to the recipient as a gift. If you choose to ship the order back to yourself all of your greeting cards, envelopes, etc. will be shipped inside another envelope or package.

Mailing Directly to the Recipient [Gift Option]

If you're sending a single greeting card directly to the recipient you just have to provide their delivery address and check the 'Gift' option on the 'Shipping Address' page during the checkout process. This will allow us the send the card inside its own envelope as if you had sent it yourself. In addition, you'll also be able to provide a return address that can be printed on the envelope. If you select the First Class Mail option we'll put a stamp on the envelope to complete the personal touch.

You can also send multiple items, like a card and gift, directly to the recipient. Simply provide the recipient's delivery information and check the 'Gift' option on the 'Shipping Address' page during the checkout process. All of the items will be placed into another package for shipment.

How Quickly Will My Order Get Shipped?

Orders that are received before 12:00 PM EST will be processed and shipped on the same day with the exception of some personalized items. Please allow up to 3 business days days processing time for personalized boxed cards or large quantities of (10 or more) personalized individual cards.

Can I Choose a Future Shipping Date?

When you choose the 'Gift' option on the 'Shipping Address' checkout page you'll have the option of choosing a future date on which to ship the package or you can have it shipped as soon as possible. Remember that the requested date is when the package will be shipped from our facility so please allow the appropriate number of days in transit based upon the shipping service selected.

Order Tracking

Once your package has left one of our fulfillment centers, you will receive an email message confirming the shipment of your order.

If you have selected a shipping method that offers package tracking you'll receive a tracking number that can be used to follow the progress of your order. If you've created an account, you can also log into your account to view the order status.
