Yes on our website we do, we now have to be selective about what we offer on Etsy because their fees with ads are now as high as 25.37% fee for smaller items. On our website you’ll find not only more to choose from but cheaper than on Etsy, we pass the 25.37% that we save in fees on to our customers.
There is a timeline on Etsy, and we stick to that pretty closely. The date range for delivery is accurate in most cases. If you need your order faster, read on to the next question on how to get your order faster.
Yes you can 2 ways. 1st – Rush fee listing. We offer a rush fee listing on Etsy. This is a PROCESSING FEE. It is not a shipping expediting fee. This rush fee shaves off the processing time to make the order in house. It can speed up your delivery date by 1-2 days during the OFF SEASON and up to 3-5 days off your order during PEAK SEASON. 2nd – If you need your order in 2-3 days then you must place your order on OUR WEBSITE and choose our rush fee AND upgrade your shipping. This will put your order in front of all orders and shipping will be via UPS in most cases. In most cases you will save 25-40% more by ordering on our site vs Etsy. We no longer offer a expedited shipping method on Etsy for two reasons, 1st they charge us a 5% fee on shipping charges and when a customer makes their order $35 or more and qualifies for free shipping on Etsy, the shipping method offers ALL methods of shipping. The customer gets free overnight shipping and we’re stuck with the shipping costs. Instead
Peak Season for us is August 1st through October 15th. 3-5 business days for shipping (customized items add 3-5 additional business days unless rush fee is paid) Off Season is October 16th through July 31st. 1-2 business days for shipping (customized items add 3-5 additional business days unless rush fee is paid) Christmas & New Years – We stop shipping for From December 18th through January 3rd in order to observe the holidays.
This is the time we need to make the order. We make a lot of our products by hand. 3-5 processing days are used on items such as decals, designer ribbon, dressed bears, and sometimes on mum bases. We try to limit this time by making items in advance of our peak season, but if we run out we have to go back to making them from scratch.
On Etsy we ship via USPS (post office) on our website we ship via UPS. If shipping via USPS is a problem for you please place your order on our website.
On Etsy, orders over $35 are free shipping.
Not at this time. We offer 4 primary colors and several secondary colors. there are a total of 38 color combinations to choose from.

We do not have wholesale capabilities. We do sell in bulk however and have prebuy sales for mum makers and those wanting to purchase in bulk. Please join our newsletter to see when our prebuys begin.
