Orders placed before 12/1, will ship in time for Christmas. We use Priority Mail and FedEx. Signs for outdoors that are over 11" tall will not be able to ship before Christmas. Orders placed on 12/1 or after will not be guaranteed to ship in time for Christmas, but we can PROVIDE A COMPUTER-GENERATED PREVIEW OF YOUR PERSONALIZED ITEM, for you to print out for a card, etc., before Christmas.
Lead times (time to make your item) after 12/1, can be 4-5 weeks. Larger outdoor signs (cedar) have longer processing times of approximately 4 to 6 weeks. In Stock non-personalized Items are ready to ship in approximately 3-5 days. We do have Rush Production upgrades if you need your item in a very short time frame; contact us for pricing and info.
***These lead/production times are always approximate time frames and can lengthen/shorten due to the large variety of items we make and the number of orders already being worked on, at the time of order placement.***
SHIPPING TO U.S. ADDRESSES: We do use USPS Priority Shipping, but please allow up to 5 business days, depending on destination, for arrival. We cannot be responsible for delays in transit with the post office (or FedEx if applicable). If you have a specific time frame for delivery, please contact us immediately to make sure we can ship accordingly for that time frame. Delivery dates with any shipping carrier, unfortunately, cannot be absolutely guaranteed.
SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY (all ship to addresses outside of United States): Please Allow up to 5 full weeks for your item to arrive, as there may be customs delays and/or transit delays with postal service that we are unable to control. Your item will probably arrive well before that time frame, but we must allow the full time frame before our postal service will consider a package lost, and allow us to file a claim. We will use USPS International mailing and/or Fedex, but tracking is not guaranteed once the package leaves the U.S. We are not responsible for any problems, delays, damages, hold ups or fees/taxes, VAT, incurred due to issues with Customs or postal services outside the U.S. BUYER must be prepared to pay any customs/taxes/VAT/duties, etc. fees per the destination's country. We do not pay or credit for any of these fees, as they are only payable by the recipient/buyer. We do not issue refunds/replacements on internationally shipped orders, due to postal service/customs delays or charges. If an item sent internationally is returned to us due to the buyer not paying their country's custom fees, taxes, VAT, duties fees, etc., no refund will be issued. If buyer pays for shipping as second time, we will be happy to re-send your order to you promptly.
Please make sure that the address on your order is the address where you want the item shipped to. We are not responsible for shipping to any address other than that on your order.
Customer Service is our Top Priority. If you have any problem with your order, please contact us so we can help you.

Characteristics of raw natural wood, including knots and grain patterns, grain pattern cracks, color shade and finished stain variances, all add to the beauty of all of our items, and are not considered defects, but will differ from piece to piece, making everything we create an Original. We cannot issue refunds for the reason of wood grain, knots, texture, surface grain pattern cracks, grain patterns, color variances, etc. We cannot guarantee any of our signs that are listed as for indoor/under cover use, when they are exposed to direct weather (outdoors) elements.
