Words By Heart

Shipping & Product Upgrades


"Production": How long it takes us to make your order and prepare it for shipping.
At any given time, we have hundreds of orders in the queue. Though it may not take 5 days to make your order, we may have 5 days worth of orders in line ahead of yours (and you better believe everyone wants their order ASAP too!) Changes to your order, lack of clarity in your personalization, requesting proofs and/or pictures, and an abundance of questions/concerns/conversations WILL result in your order being delayed. We want to make sure your order is *perfect* before we ship it out and will not rush it and risk losing quality.

"Transit Time": How long it takes our shipping carriers to process and delivery your item. We normally use United States Postal Service and Fed Ex.


Free Shipping:

This is NOT guaranteed and we cannot refund if the USPS does not follow their own guidelines (very rare.)
Very dependable service and is what I always select when ordering anything for myself online.

Why is this option so much more than the others?
1. It is Fed Ex
2. We drop everything we are doing to take care of your order, which may result in no sleep if necessary (seriously, we already work 14-18 hour days 6+ days a week.)
3. The Fed Ex office is 40 minutes away so there is a fuel charge and we can't work on other orders while we are transporting yours.
