Rates & Time

Shipping Times

You can see the estimated arrival dates of your order during checkout.

To calculate the estimated arrival dates, we add the time it takes to process your order before it ships plus the time it takes to arrive at your shipping address after it leaves our warehouse.

Most packages in your order can be tracked via our carriers’ websites. It may take up to 1 business day for your information to be posted on the carrier’s website from the date your order is shipped. Order tracking is available for orders placed within the last 60 days. Sign in to your account to track a shipped order.

We’re sorry, at this time we cannot provide tracking information for international shipments.

Please note:
CafePress does its best to ensure your delivery arrives on time. However, delivery dates are not guaranteed and your order may arrive after the estimated arrival date for various reasons, including unforeseen delays.

For example, your order may arrive after the estimated arrival date you see in checkout for any of the following reasons:

  • Order contains items with longer than 2 day processing time, except books
  • Large orders that have more than 100 items may require longer processing time
  • Delivery is to a P.O. Box or APO/FPO address
  • Delivery is outside the 48 continental United States
  • Delays for Canada and International orders due to customs clearance
  • Delays due to problems with credit card authorization and verification
  • Problems with uploaded designs or media that do not meet our recommended requirements encountered during processing of your order
