If your order contains more than one item, your package will ship once all items are ready. Note that different materials have different cutoff dates, so identify the material in your order with the longest production time and use that as your deadline. The shipping dates in your cart will tell you whether we can ship your order for Christmas delivery.

A few additional things to remember as well:

  • Customized Products: If you plan to order a product that requires customization from the designer (these typically say "Personalize" when you're ordering), note that we must wait for the designer to provide the design before we begin to manufacture it. You may need to allow for additional time.
  • New Products & First to Try: If you are ordering a new, untested design, it's possible that we may run into issues while 3D printing. The same goes for products that are marked “First to Try”, as this means that product is still in early stages of development. We recommend ordering new, untested products with several days to spare, which will give us time to try 3D printing your design again.
  • Beta Products: Products designated as “Beta” mean the designer is looking for feedback to improve his or her design. We recommend ordering these products as early as possible, as they are still in development and may turn out differently than you envisioned.
  • Bank transfers: If you are paying by bank transfer, please note that payment must be complete by the final order date. Bank transfers can take up to 4 to 5 days to complete, so give yourself a buffer.
  • VAT taxes: VAT must be checked before the deadline to ensure the order is approved and ready for production.
