After-Christmas update: just a reminder that there is only one shipping day for shirts during the week of New Years (see details below.) Normal shipping for shirts resumes January 5th. All other items ship as normal with standard Christmas and New Years holidays.

original post: 

It's that time of year again - time once again to issue the annual deadlines for shipping in time for Christmas.

Here are the basic deadlines for US shipping:
Posters, pillows, mugs, totes, hats - December 10
Shirts & stickers - December 16; (local orders in SoCal - December 20)
Canvasbox prints - December 16

And gift cards are available Dec 20-26! (more detail below)

The truth about these dates is that they are best safe, quite honestly, guesses. These are based on recommendations given by our suppliers and the post office or shipping companies. There's always a chance you can still get things in time after these dates, and we'll do our best to get them out as fast as possible, but we can't make any guarantees. If you're in doubt, go with a gift card!

Here is more detail about the normal timings of our products and shipping if you want to decide for yourself:

Posters, pillows, mugs, totes, and hats are slowest - they generally ship out about 3-5 days after the order is received. Delivery of those usually happen around 3-4 days after they ship, depending on where in the country you are. Shirts and stickers are fastest - they usually ship the day after an order is received, 2 days max. Delivery of those is usually 2-4 days after they ship. Local orders ship faster, so I've put a pretty late deadline on those. (and if you're within 5 miles, I may even deliver by hand!) Canvasbox prints usually ship about 2-3 days after an order is placed, and delivery is usually around 2-4 days after they ship.

And finally - gift cards! We'll put gift cards back up on the site from the 20th to 26th. Gift cards are electronic and delivered by email, so you can get them even at the last minute on Christmas Day if you forget someone! Print it out and wrap it - or just email it to them. If anyone wants gift cards available sooner than the 20th, just email me and I'll add them to the store sooner.

An important note: In order to spend time with family, there will be only 1 shipment of shirts per week during the weeks of Christmas and New Years. Orders received after the 20th but by the 22nd will ship out Dec 23/24. (You won't get those in time for Christmas!) Orders between Dec 22-29 will ship Dec 30/31. Orders after Dec 29 will ship Jan 5. This applies to shirts and hoodies only. All other products will process and ship as normal aside from normal holidays.

As always, thanks for the support for OsoPorto. If you're getting or giving gifts of ours, I hope you love them. But no matter what, I hope you get the chance to spend time with those that are most important to you and have a holiday full of moments of joy.
