Halloween delivery cutoff dates
Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, which means you’ll want orders to be delivered by Wednesday (Oct 30th). Once we’ve passed the standard shipping cutoff dates, buyers can still receive their products in time for October 31st—they’ll just need to place their order and select ‘rush shipping’ by the “order by date” listed below. Plan to initiate your listing’s print cycle on the standard shipping cutoff date to ensure shoppers get their order in time. Keep in mind delivery timelines are usually faster than what’s listed below, but we use the maximum delivery timeline to make sure there’s plenty of time for orders to be delivered.
