How long does it typically take for my order to ship?

Visual Proofs

Vinyl decals and Doc Band wraps: Except in unusual circumstances like illness or vacation, you should receive a proof via email within about one business day of your order.  If you like it, please respond with printing approval, or ask for changes.
Exceptions: A few designs not personalized may just print and ship without sending a proof.

Printing and Shipping

We generally print and ship within a business day of receiving printing approval.  Wraps need to sit about 24 hours after printing for the ink to firmly dry, so they may ship the day after.

Typical Processing and Shipping Speeds

It is very typical for orders to ship the next business day after the order is placed.  You order at noon.  I send a proof by that evening.  You approve printing by the next morning.  It ships later that day or the day after.

If we don’t hear from you

If you do not respond to us, either asking for changes or approving printing, we will wait about 7-10 days, then print and ship (Why we do that.).

Express Shipping

Please note – Express shipping does not change our process: You order, we send a proof, you approve or ask for changes, we print and ship.  Express shipping just changes how we ship the package to you.  Express (1-2 day delivery) versus First Class (3+ day delivery) mail.
I know Express mail is $28.  It is not a work-weekends-and-cancel-vacations rush fee.  $25 of it goes to the post office.  $1.25 goes to the credit card company.  That leaves $1.75 for me, but even that I don’t really recieve.
Occasionally the post office doesn’t deliver Express mail in 1-2 days and you ask me for a refund.  I don’t get a refund from the post office.
And occasionally for whatever reason I have to send a follow up package and I have to cover that.
So please understand that the $28 is not a rush fee and please do not yell at me that I didn’t work a weekend or come back from vacation early after you paid it.  It is just paying the post office for quicker delivery.

  1. I ordered decals almost 2 weeks ago and I STILL didn’t get them. Please help me.

    Hi Jasmine, I don’t see an order under your email address or your name?

  2. Hello! I just placed an order on 4/13/2014 and I am wondering if I will get the decals I ordered for my daughter’s DOC band before Easter which is in one week.

    Thanks so much!

    • Alexis, you will get a proof by tonight if you have not gotten one earlier. We print and ship at least every other day, and ship via priority mail!
