Holiday Shipping Deadlines

A field of wild blue camas in Montana springtime has nothing to do with postal shipping speeds. However, it is pretty.

Time is running out for holiday shoppers to get their orders in and arriving before their respective holidays. We likely have already missed the deadline to make sure a Hanukkah package arrives by the first night of the holiday, but there are 8 great nights to celebrate with a new pen.

Christmas shoppers have until December 15 to order pens and use the United States Postal Service’s Ground Advantage (cheapest) shipping service. Orders must be placed by December 19 and using Priority Mail to arrive in time for the big day.

International buyers, we can get you cheaper rates than our system generates for you. The system we have undercharges for FedEx…but if you prefer USPS International Priority Mail, it is much cheaper than the system generates for you. HOWEVER, International Priority Mail has been inconsistent in its delivery times. Your best bet is to order as soon as possible. USPS says it will deliver in 7 to 10 business days, but they do not promise this, as packages sometimes get trapped in your country’s customs office.
