Please note:

1. The delivery dates indicated in the first column do not cover the production time or the period we spend manufacturing the custom boxes. We'll send your custom boxes for shipping after production, hence the advanced order periods listed above.

Remember, the best way to ensure your order arrives in time for your holiday promotion is to order early. While we’ve done our best to estimate our schedule based on historical demand, these dates are subject to change at any time. If you have a hard delivery deadline, please check back here prior to placing your order to verify the current timelines.

 

2. Note that the estimated advanced order periods assume that you have approved the PDF proof sent online. Please keep an eye out for our emails in case we have any questions to avoid any delays.

 

Holiday Printing Schedule FAQs 

How do I make sure my package arrives before the holidays? 

As early as possible, we recommend choosing Expedite Production when ordering custom mailer boxes and shipping boxes. Expedite production turnaround is separate from the design proofing stage and shipping time, so give yourself as much lead time as possible. 

 

Why does it take 15-20 days to produce my mailer boxes? 

We have steps involving proofing, printing setup, and production. Producing custom boxes require time because of the order volumes and setting up customized cutting dies specific to your box design. After production, the boxes are packed and prepared for shipping. Your boxes are carefully packed, wrapped, and loaded into shipping vehicles.  

 

Can you guarantee the shipping turnaround time? 

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that shipping carriers can deliver your orders to you on time. While we can manufacture and ship out your orders as scheduled, we cannot avoid potential shipping delays while they are in transit.

 

When does production time start? 

Production time starts once you approve the PDF proof. You can also opt to waive the PDF proof process. We can inspect your artwork and start production if no problems are found. If we find a problem (like a low-resolution logo), we will contact you to resolve it.  

However, we highly recommend getting your design proofed for free so your custom boxes are produced according to your exact expectations. 

 

How long does it take to get proof and approve my packaging design? 

It may take up to 24 hours for you to receive the proof for approval. We will only print your order once you approve the PDF proof. If you’re in a rush, you should immediately check and approve your proof as soon as it is emailed to you by our print experts. 

To see your online proof, you need to select “Send me a PDF proof for approval” during checkout. After we have reviewed your artwork, we will prepare the PDF proof and email it to you. Production starts once you approve this proof.  

 

What shipping methods do you offer? 

We offer FedEx as our standard shipping method with options for 5-day, 2-day, and 1-day transit. In addition, you can also pick up your orders from our printing facility.
