What about Shipping?  The estimated delivery date is based on your purchase date, the recipient’s location, the seller’s processing time and location, and the shipping carrier. Other factors—like placing an order on a weekend or a holiday—may end up pushing the arrival of your item beyond the estimated delivery date. It’s our hope that your item gets where it’s going as soon as possible, but given the factors involved, this is only an estimate.

Where do you ship to? Right now we only produce and ship books in North America.

What is the timeline for orders?  Since each project is custom-made, ordering times vary. Once I receive your photos & materials, design time is 1-5 business days.
