Stitch Nation :: Expected Shipping Time



PRODUCTION TIME + SHIPPING TIME = TOTAL TIME TO REACH YOU


Production Time = Approximate Time it takes us to Process, Manufacture, Quality Check & Pack Your Order
Shipping Time = Approximate Time it takes from our doorstep to your doorstep

Helpful Hint: It’s ALWAYS a good idea to include the Deadline Date by which you need to receive your item in the special instructions sections if in a rush.


Slow Season = Fastest Turnaround (January, February, June, July, August, September)
Busy Season = May Experience Delays Due To Heavy Traffic (March, April, May, October, November, December)

Helpful Hint: We apologize for any delay during the Busy Season. The best advice is to get your order in early with enough time to cover production & shipping times so you’re not left paying for Rush Guarantee Services.


There are NO GUARANTEES ON ARRIVAL DATES unless you’ve specifically paid for Rush Production and/or Rush Shipping. We do our best to give our clients the best guestimate we can possibly make based on past performance and years of experience. However, our experience also tells us that we can encounter broken machines, power outages, HUGE orders that tie us up for a couple of days, shipping errors, and ridiculously delayed backorder items.

Helpful Hint: If there is an error on our end due to shipping, poor quality, incorrect manufacturing or otherwise, we’ll do everything we can to fix the problem. See Return, Exchange, and Mistake Policy for more info on the boo-boos we cover and how to fix them.


We DO GUARANTEE that we’ll do our best to meet or beat every guestimated time we give and try to get every order out the door as fast as humanly possible. We also GUARANTEE that we’ll do everything in our power to communicate any delays exceeding the guestimated time we’ve laid out for your items. When in doubt (or rush), call us!!

Helpful Hint: BASIC Clothing/Apparel is anything manufactured with ONLY GREEK LETTERS. The addition of any name, #, crest, sleeve, symbol, or otherwise is considered CUSTOM Clothing/Apparel. Please call if unsure of a category your merchandise falls under. (See Example Items Too!)

BASIC SHIPPING INFO


Helpful Hint: We’ll send you 2 confirmations when your order is sent. The 1st from GN stating your order status has changed. The 2nd from USPS or UPS with a Tracking Number to let you know that your package is on the way and giving you the ability to track it from our doorstep to yours.


Packages Weighing Less Than 1 LB – PO Boxes – Military Addresses
Experienced in keeping costs low for our clients, Stitch Nation has found that the United States Post office does a terrific job in delivering smaller packages and flat envelopes. Therefore, packages weighing less than 1 LB will be sent via the USPS. Furthermore, the USPS owns, maintains and operates all PO Boxes (thus the name PO BOX) and is the ONLY entity allowed to deliver to a PO BOX in the US. Same goes for the military addresses (AF, AEO, AFO, APO, etc…)... It’s the USPS all the way for our military clients!

  • Packages Weighing More Than 1 LB
    Experience also tells us that when it comes to packages weighing more than a pound, UPS does a Brown-tastic job in getting things safe and sound to our clients in a short and sweet amount of time. For packages weighing more than 1 LB, we’ll ship it to you via UPS.
