Shipping - Time, Delivery & Cost

Shipping Time

As our products are custom-made for each recipient, shipping times vary, depending on the product(s) purchased. Typically, we have most orders ready for shipping within 24 - 48 hours. However, at Christmastime and whenever we have run a promotion for which there is a high response, shipping times can be unpredictable.

Currently, the turnaround time is 24 - 48 hours.

ALL orders will be shipped via Canada Post.

NOTE: During the busy Christmas season, delivery times cannot be guaranteed. Once we've placed an order into Canada Post's hands, we have no further control over it.
