It's the age old question every year: Can I still get it in time? If you're still shopping for Christmas gifts, here's more detail on our shipping deadlines:
the basic "safe" deadlines for US shipping:
Pillows, posters, graphic prints, hats, mugs, tote bags, glossy prints, canvasbox prints - DECEMBER 10
Shirts, hoodies, stickers, greeting cards - DECEMBER 15
Note that this year, there will be no shipments of shirts/hoodies and stickers between December 17 and January 2. All shirts ordered Dec 17 or later will not ship until January 3.
(Gift cards are available again on demand - just email if you'd like to purchase one! More detail below.)
I say this every year, but the thing about these dates is that they are honestly just best safe guesses. These are based on recommendations given by our suppliers and the post office/shipping companies merged with the typical times our orders process and ship. We don't make the deliveries ourselves, so we're just trying to give the best info. There's always a chance you might still get orders in time even if you order after these dates - and we've had good luck in previous years, and of course we'll try to get them out as fast as possible no matter when you order. (I will note that there have been more issues/delays/mistakes in the past two years than in previous years with postal and delivery services.) And of course a gift card is always a safe bet - even on Dec 24!
If you want to decide for yourself whether to chance it after the basic dates above, here is more detail about the "normal" timings of our products and shipping:
Framed posters/prints, and canvasbox prints are slowest - they generally ship out about 5-7 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. Unframed posters/prints, pillows, hats, mugs, and totes are next - they generally ship out about 3-5 days after the order is received. Delivery of those again usually happen around 3-4 days after they ship, depending on where in the country you are. Shirts, hoodies, stickers and greeting cards are fastest - they usually ship the day after an order is received, 2 days max. Delivery of those is usually 3-5 days after they ship. (By the way, hoodies always ship Priority because of their weight anyway.)
Also, if you live in LA, I'll be doing a pop-up at the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday the 8th from 11a-4:30pm; and another at King Harbor Village Tasting Room in Redondo Beach on Thursday the 13th from 6-9pm. Stop by and grab a last minute gift in person!
And finally - gift cards! Gift cards are virtual 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. It costs per day just to offer gift cards live on the site, so again this year I'm going to do gift cards by request. Just email me and I'll gladly flip the switch to make them available and send you a link for you to purchase online.
As always, thanks for supporting OsoPorto. This is our fifth holiday season, and every year I get to meet more of you and am always thrilled to discover you like our stuff - even if just the Instagram posts. Your support keeps it all going, so thank you. I hope the holidays are great ones for you this year.
