  • When will my order ship?

Some of our products are made to order while some are already in it could take approximately 2-3 weeks depending on the product. You will get an email with tracking information as soon as your package is processed by the Post Office. Please note we are experiencing delays due to COVID-19, and we appreciate your patience during these uncertain times.


  • If I order a pre-order item and an in-stock item on the same order, will they ship together or separately?

If you order something that is pre-order (like a custom tote or item from new campaign) with an in-stock item, the entire order will wait and ship together in one shipment. If you want the in-stock item quicker, please place on a separate order so it ships immediately.
