When should I expect to receive my purchase?

When you’ll receive your order depends on the method of shipping you selected and that carrier’s time to deliver. We do our best to estimate delivery dates for your purchase. The total delivery time for your PGDirect order to arrive is a combination of the printing and shipping time. The print time is typically 3 working days (72 hours) and when it is ready to leave Publishers’ Graphics. The FREE Shipping delivery time is typically 2-6 business days through the United States Postal Service (USPS). For example, estimated delivery time = print time + shipping time, this means the order will leave Publishers’ Graphics within 3 days and will arrive within 2-6 business days of leaving Publishers’ Graphics.

Our Business Days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays observed by the Post Office, such as New Year’s Day, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Note: PGDirect is not responsible for lost or misdirected shipments by the US Postal Service. Please contact your local post office with any delivery questions or concerns.
Delivery times are not guaranteed. Sometimes the availability of the items in your order may change while we are processing your order. In this event, you will receive an email notifying you of a delay, and the remaining eligible items in your order will be shipped as scheduled.
