Shipping & Turnaround

Proof Turnaround Time

We provide one complimentary digital PDF proof and two complimentary proof revision rounds with every order of personalized wrappers and boxes. After you place your order, you will receive your proof by email in 2 business days. For example, place your order on a Monday and receive your proof by Wednesday. Orders placed on Friday will receive a proof by the following Tuesday. Orders placed during holiday closures will receive a proof two business days after the holiday. Each proof revision round requested will also take 2 business days to receive, so be sure to allow extra time for the proofing process. Once approved, your order goes to the production queue and will be printed exactly as shown on your proof. To help ensure your personalized design is free of errors and typos, we require you to review your proof and give us your final proof approval before we can print and ship your order. If you request a revision after you submit your proof approval, we can only accommodate your revision request if we have not yet started production on your order. You will also be required to review the revised proof and resubmit your Proof Approval, which may result in a shipping delay.

    return package fee

    Shipping carriers may charge a fee to return the package to the sender. Since we shipped the package on your behalf, you will be responsible for the return shipping fee if you refuse delivery, or if a delivery attempt has been made by the carrier with no success. If the package is returned by the carrier to us, we'll be happy to re-ship the package, but the customer will be responsible for paying re-shipping charges.

    We carefully package every order and will do our best to work with you to ensure smooth delivery of your package. We cannot, however, control the actual delivery of your order after your package leaves our hands and is accepted by the shipping carrier. After the shipping carrier accepts your package, the actual delivery of your package can be impacted by many events beyond Sweet Paper Shop’s control. For this reason, we cannot be held liable for late deliveries by the shipping carrier, lost or stolen packages, or service disruptions due to weather-related conditions and other natural disasters or events. Since we rely on the customer to provide us with a correct shipping address, we cannot be held responsible for delayed, lost or returned packages as a result of wrong address due to customer error. To check the latest weather-related service alerts for USPS shipments, you can click here to visit their website. If your order has shipped by USPS and is delayed, missing, or shown as delivered but cannot be located, the quickest way to have your questions answered regarding the status of your package would be to use USPS trackingcontact USPS directly, or contact your local post office. If your package is shown as delivered and you cannot locate it, we also suggest you do the following:

      • Check mailboxes for smaller packages.
      • Check for a parcel locker key if your mailbox is in a cluster unit.
      • Check areas outside of your house where packages are usually left by your delivery person, such as the front door, sideyard and backyard.
      • Look for a possible mail hold notice in your mailbox or attempted delivery notice left by the carrier near your front door.
      • Check with household members, building managers, front desk, mailroom and anyone else who may have accepted the delivery for you.
