Delivery & Shipping Policy

There are 3 different order types at Envelope Ink: Plain Orders, Printed Orders and Sample Orders. There are shipping details relating to each type of order below:

Plain Orders

95% of plain orders ship the same or next business day. We do not guarantee same day shipping, but we try very hard!

In the event that an item is backordered, you will be notified and presented with the best options to proceed with the order.

Orders are processed Monday-Friday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM ET. Orders placed outside of these hours will not be processed until the next business day. Orders placed after 5:00pm ET on Friday, will be processed on Monday, except in the event of a Holiday in which the fulfillment center is closed. Envelope Ink facilities are closed on weekends.

If you order has been processed for shipping, or has shipped, we can't cancel your order. You can refuse the delivery, and your order will be subject to our return policy.

In the event there is a credit card authorization issue, the order will be put on hold and you will be notified immediately.

Printed Envelopes

After you have approved your proof and production is complete, shipping transit time will take from 1-7 business days depending on what level of Shipping Service you have selected. Once your proof is approved, total processing, production and delivery time for printed orders can be as fast as 3 business days or as long as 11 business days depending on your production time, shipping method, and delivery location.

Sample Orders

Sample Orders are processed and mailed via the US Postal Service with 1st Class Postage within 3-5 business days. They do not have a tracking number.

In the event a Sample Order is deemed to exceed the US Postal Service 1st Class Mail guidelines you will be contacted by customer service regarding the fee for an alternate shipping method.
