** 2014 HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES and other awesome info**
Since it's getting to be that time of year, here's what you need to know for getting Vital holiday gifts to your friends and family on time... as always, you are very welcome to contact us if you have questions about your order or shipping :)
Please review these holiday shipping guidelines and call or email us before you buy if you need upgraded shipping services for your package to arrive on time.
Our shipping mavens send packages out every business day, M-F, except holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Although we wish they could be, these shipping provider dates are NOT GUARANTEED, just guidelines, so we've found that allowing a few extra days will help keep your gift-giving stress levels in the happy zone. Shipping at the holidays is often delayed due to weather or system capacity! Remember to add in the production time (1-2 days for most products, 1-2 weeks for custom items) so you know when your order is likely to leave our studio.
Lighter orders (clothing, totes, hats, less than 4 glasses, etc) typically ship via USPS First Class mail or Priority Mail depending on exact weight.
