Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Original ArtJosh SimmonsJim FloraJaime Hernandezart showsart 12 Dec 2008 2:11 PM

Holiday shipping deadline
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 10 Dec 2008 11:56 PM

Don't forget, if you want your order shipped by our Standard shipping option within the U.S. to arrive before Christmas, tomorrow (Friday, December 12) is the deadline to get your order in! (UPDATE: our shipping folks have informed me that if you're shipping to a P.O. box, you'll want to select First Class or Priority Mail shipping rather than Standard.) After that, you'll have until Monday for USPS Priority Mail delivery and until next Friday for 2nd Day UPS. We'll post reminders for those deadlines as well.

If you need some gift suggestions, check out our handy Holiday Gift Guide with lots of ideas for every interest and budget!
