Shipping

 

2022 holiday dates for shipping to addresses in the United States

 

December 15: Our recommended deadline for domestic Christmas delivery via USPS.  While we can't guarantee delivery, regardless of carrier, our hope is that if you order by December 5, USPS will have be able to get orders to domestic addresses by Christmas.  However, regardless of when you order, we strongly recommend UPS.

December 19 at 3pm EST: Our deadline for UPS 3 Business Day Select delivery. 


For shipments to addresses within the U.S. (scroll down for International shipping)

Flat-rate shipping: Regardless of the number of items you order, the shipping price for shirts, caps, unframed prints and posters, bracelets, lapel pins, pendants, and button packs is $5.95.

For hooded and crewneck sweatshirts, mugs, and blankets, the shipping cost is $8.95. 

Our flat rate shipping means you can add two or more t-shirts, sweatshirts, or caps for no additional shipping charge.

Note that some large or heavy items may have an additional shipping charge, and when they do, that will be noted on the product page.

 

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.

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.

          This is my "go to" tote. It is the perfect size for transporting items to and from school. It is super history nerdish for history teachers like me!

          Gifts Galore

          I ordered 6 of the totes. One for me and one for each of the girls in my APUSH reader squad; I am taking them to the read in Louisville to give to them. They beautiful, high quality, and the perfect size for toting about my grading and other work stuff. Definitely a winner!!
