SHIP IT GOOD
It's pretty much a holiday tradition - time to issue the annual deadlines for shipping in time for Christmas.
Here are the basic "safe" deadlines for US shipping:
Pillows, posters, graphic prints, hats, mugs, tote bags, canvasbox prints - DECEMBER 9
Shirts, hoodies, stickers, greeting cards - DECEMBER 15; (local orders in SoCal - December 19)
(Gift cards available by request - just email if you'd like to purchase one!)
The truth 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. There's always a chance you might still get orders in time even if you order after these dates - we've had good luck in previous years (even pretty late), and of course 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, why not 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:
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, mugs, totes, and hats 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. Local orders ship faster, so I've put a pretty late deadline on those. (By the way, hoodies always ship Priority because of their weight anyway.)
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 this year I'm going to do gift cards by request. Just email me and I'll gladly flip the switch so that you can purchase one online.
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 the holiday gives you time to spend with those most important to you or do whatever you love most.
