Multiple Shipping Addresses
One of the great options you can utilize is the ability to have multiple delivery addresses and recipients during the checkout process. As an example, you can customize a birthday card for your sister, add another birthday card with a personal message for your uncle and send each card to a different person and delivery address. You have the flexibility to send any number of items to any number of people or addresses.
Can I Choose a Future Shipping Date?
If you're adding a personal message to the inside of a card and mailing it directly to the recipient for a special occasion you can fill out the order "notes" during the checkout process and let us know if you need the card mailed on a future date. When choosing a shipping date, please allow the appropriate number of days in transit based upon the shipping service selected.
Once your package has left one of our fulfillment centers, you will receive an email message confirming the shipment of your order.
Please note that the USPS (US Mail) First Class Letter option is the same as placing a stamp on an envelope and there is no package tracking.
