Holiday Ordering Deadlines

Hi, friend! How has your work week been going after the holidays? If it's been hard adjusting back - just think that tomorrow is already Friday! Zack and I are going to a friend's house this weekend for a tacky sweater party and egg nog tasting, and we're really excited! Zack isn't a huge egg nog fan though, so I'll be bringing some honey bourbon apple cider instead!

While the holiday sale weekend is over, I wanted to let y'all know that there is still time to grab your favorite holiday goodies from the SJM Shop in time for Christmas! There are a few deadlines quickly approaching for the holidays however, and I want to make sure you know about them so you can surprise your favorite loved ones with gifts under the tree this year!

The first deadline that is quickly approaching is for my custom address stamps! The classic address stamp design is definitely a customer favorite! Address stamps take about 2 business days for proofing (I'll send you a darling mockup of what your custom stamp will look like on an envelope!), about 1-2 business days for production, and an additional 2-4 business days before I receive your stamp from my little elves! I'll then review your stamp for perfection, package it up, and send it on your way!

If you place your order by this upcoming Monday, December 5, I will be shipping your stamp around December 14 or 15, and it will arrive to you around December 15-19 depending on your location (USPS Priority Mail is 1-3 business days for shipping). So, please note that this deadline is for receiving your stamp in time for the holidays, not necessarily in time to use for sending your holiday cards! It is great for sending Happy New Year's cards, though!

All darling lifestyle products, including pillows, mugs, and tote bags, have an ordering deadline of December 7. These products will all be shipped to you directly from my other little elves and my wonderful lifestyle products production partner's studio - so these will ship separately from custom stamps and all paper products!

Finally, all calendars, greeting cards, stationery sets, art prints, and gift tags have an ordering deadline of December 9! These will all ship out from the SJM Studio no later than December 19, but more likely around December 16!

I also wanted to note that I will be out of the studio from December 21 - December 27 for Christmas! The SJM Shop will be closed during that time for shipping products, but you are still welcome to place orders during those days! All orders placed after the deadlines mentioned above will ship once I return to the SJM Studio.

All SJM Shop products will be shipped to you via my friends at the US Post Office with USPS Priority Mail Shipping. Priority takes about 1-3 business days, depending on how far your home is from either my studio or the studio of my friendly elves! Please note that while I wish I could simply bring you your package over a cup of chai, the package is in the hands of the USPS ladies and gents after I ship it from my studio. SJM is not responsible for any delays, lost packages, or undeliverable packages once the package leaves the SJM Studio. Of course, I will do my best with what I can to help you if there are any problems with shipping! 

So, friends - I hope this holiday ordering schedule helps with your own holiday shopping list making, and that you can start checking gifts off your list soon! Don't be like me and wait until the last minute to shop (a trait that I lovingly get from my sweet mama, that we both say we'll kick to the curb one day!) - place all of your orders in time so I can ensure that you'll have your gifts in time for Christmas morning!
