Timing

We try to ship orders within three business days of receiving them. This applies to in-stock items. Framed items or items requiring personalization may take up to two weeks longer. If there is an extended delay, it will be noted on the product page.

We close for a week over Independence Day and Christmas. A notice will appear at the top of every page of the site in advance of this closure.

We ship most orders via USPS, so if the post office is closed, we won't be shipping orders that day.

If you need to receive your order by a certain date, such as to give as a gift or have for a trip, we recommend ordering at least two weeks in advance, especially if you are using USPS shipping. 

If you're looking for reliable, on-time deliveries, we strongly suggest upgrading to "UPS 3 Business Day Select Shipping."

Additional notes:

  • When fulfillment takes longer, such as around the Christmas holidays, we'll put up an announcement in the site and will list recommended shipping deadlines below.
  • If an item is out of stock, we will contact you.
  • If one of your items is an advance order, that will be noted on the product page along with an estimate of when it will ship. If that estimated date changes, the product page will be updated.

        Regardless of the number of items you order, the shipping price is still fixed at $5.95. Our flat rate shipping means you can add another t-shirt, cap, or book for no additional shipping charge.

      • $8.95 for hooded and crewneck sweatshirts, mugs, and blankets.

          Good quality. Cannot wait until Christmas to wear it!

          GW Christmas shirt

          Loved the graphics on this shirt - colorful, clean, and classy! The sizes of the 2 shirts I purchased were good also. The only reason this product received a 4 rather than a 5 is the weight of the cloth used - it is thin-weight cotton and thus 1) of uncertain durability and 2) less than ideal for the winter holiday season. GW and the guys froze their butts off at Valley Forge, but I did not expect to "share" that experience! ;-) Overall, though, I like the shirts - you just have to wear something warm under them.

          Thank you for your order and for letting us know that you'd like something warmer. Glad you like the design. We have that same design as a long-sleeved shirt and a sweatshirt. Both of those should be an improvement in terms of warmth over the short-sleeved shirts you ordered. Please send a note to our customer service folks (orders@thehistorylist.com) and we'll handle the exchange.

          Regarding the short-sleeved shirts you purchased, they are made in the USA and hold up well. The 4.4 oz weight we list on the product page is designed to make sure that folks know that it's not a thick, heavy t-shirt. (We do have those in some other designs, if that's of interest.) If you ever think that that shirt or anything you get is not satisfactory, now or later, send us a note and tell us what happened and we'll work with you to make it right.

          Thanks, again, for your order--Lee Wright | Founder

          Washington Christmas Day Crossing Shirt

          This shirt is great! My daughter is a history teacher and often wears a shirt as a symbol for the lesson of the day! The “Silent Night” in German also has a special place in our family! Thank you.
