Instead, computer generated labels are showing distributor’s name and address as shipper.

Delivery dates are not guaranteed and are approximate. We strive to deliver as close to requested dates as possible. However, production time is affected by an influx of orders in the latter part of the year. Early placement of orders is therefore recommended. For custom calendars and specialties with layouts that require design, artwork, and proofs, allow 10 to 12 weeks. We suggest that all custom orders be ready for printing no later than September 1, with all approvals complete. It is helpful to have all calendar requests for special designs, artwork, and proofs before August 1 if delivery is to be met.

Orders will be processed in order of acceptance and estimated ship dates given. Special circumstances requiring a specific delivery date or any concern or questions on your order's ship date, please contact customer service.
