Art Proofing, Production Time and Shipping Times:

Art Proofing:
All products that are personalized require Art Proofing. The standard time to prepare and email an Art Proof is 2-3 working days, unless otherwise noted in the Product Details. The time it takes to prepare an art proof is variable and dependant upon several factors including, but not limited to, the quality of art you provide, and if necessary the amount of work involved in “cleaning up” the art so that it’s press ready. Another factor to consider is the additional time to make changes if you require changes to the “Art Proof”. In some instances, an additional “Art Fee” may be necessary and quoted separately. This fee must be paid in advance. Art that requires more work may add additional time to complete your order.

Production Time:
Production Time is the amount of time it will take to manufacture your order after "Art Proof" approval, before it is shipped. Production time can be affected by several variables. Production time begins after ShapedPens.com has received your "Art Proof" approval.

Shipping Time:
Shipping Time is the amount of time it will take your order to be received after it is shipped. Shipping time is dependant upon which method you choose for shipping. We are not responsible for shipper delays.

Total Time:
All products that are personalized require Art Proofing and have a "Standard Production Time" and a "Shipping Time" dependant on the shipping method you choose. Adding Art Proofing, Production Time and Shipping Time together will provide an approximate date that you can expect to receive your order. Each product has a "Standard Production Time" that is listed in the product details. A product may also have a "Rush Order Production" option that will reduce production time. See your individual product choices for more information in the Product Details. A variety of shipping service levels are offered to give you the most flexibility in determining when you will receive your order.
Production Days (or working days) and Shipping Days are considered normal Monday through Friday business days excluding any holidays.
