We print our photos as they are ordered. This will ensure the cleanest product goes to our customers. It is printed, placed in the sleeve, only being handled once. There is a 4-5 Business day delay from time of purchase until it hits the mail. It may take as long as 7-10 days for final delivery. Also, we do not work weekends so if you order over the weekend it could possibly have a longer delay. All items are shipped via USPS First Class Mail. We ship to Continental United States only.
