Order-By Dates for Key Retail Events

Need Your Packaging for a Holiday? Here's When to Order:

We understand the importance of having your packaging in-hand when you need it most. If you want your order by a specific date, allow adequate time for the production and shipping process. During key retail events, such as Black Friday and Christmas, be sure to take into account that most shipping carriers are at their peak season. High shipping demands can cause delays to your order. To help you prepare, we've outlined our recommended order-by dates for key retail events in the table below.

During peak shipping season, we advise placing your packaging order at least 4-5 weeks before the date its needed. Our current production time is 25+ business days after receiving artwork*. This does not include shipping time, which varies depending on carrier. 

Fantastapack offers Rush Production for custom boxes to speed up production to 7 business days. Rush Production may not be available during peak times, please check Fantastapack.com or with our Support team for the most up-to-date status.
