Lead Times

We look forward to fulfilling your packaging needs! This page is updated daily.

Lead times seem longer than normal? They are. COVID-19 has impacted the supply chain of many of our products, and holiday (Quarter 4) season also increases order volume and lead time. We are doing our best to deliver your order to you as soon as possible!

Lead time = Time needed to process and ready your order for shipment. Does not include ship time.

Note: for orders with multiple products:

  • Orders containing boxes and stock items: Order will ship once boxes are completed.
  • Orders containing custom-printed items: Orders containing custom-printed items and stock items: stock items will ship first separately, printed items will ship according to their respective lead time.
