Shipping & Returns


What are my shipping options?

When you check out, you'll have a number of shipping options that meet your budget and time frame. We also display the guaranteed delivery dates for each shipping option, so you can know for sure that your order will arrive when you need it, and that you're selecting the best shipping option for your wallet.

How will my order be shipped?

We ship the majority of our orders with UPS, but we cannot guarantee a specific carrier - but we do guarantee it'll get there by the time we say it will. We ship from our headquarters and manufacturing facility in Tampa, Florida.

How long does it take for my order to ship?

Once you place your order, you will immediately see it on our Track Your Order page as Processing. We then prioritize orders based on guaranteed delivery date so your crystal arrives on or before the date we promised. For orders with shipping addresses closer to our location in Florida, this may mean a longer handling time than orders distant from us, all so we can meet your guaranteed delivery date. Not to worry, your crystal will arrive when we say it will!

You say you guarantee your delivery. What's that mean?

Our checkout process lists a delivery date based upon our own image conversion, processing, and engraving time, as well as the time our delivery carriers quote us to get your crystal to your destination. Sometimes, whether it's because of something under our control or not (such as weather-related issues), your order may not arrive in time. We promise to make it right in the event that that occurs. Simply contact us and let us know your order was late, and we'll make it right.

We guarantee the shipping dates of all of our orders when we have all of the information available to us at the time of purchase. In other words, if we have to reach out to you to complete a purchase (such as if you select "Choose Later" when ordering a custom crystal, or if we have to contact you regarding a photo issue), we can no longer guarantee the delivery date that was shown at the time of purchase. We'll always give you an opportunity to cancel your order if we have to reach out to you to clarify the order or gather additional information, if the projected delivery date no longer works for you.

My order didn't arrive in time, and now I'm in trouble. What next?

If your order is shipped and not delivered when you expected it, we will discuss options with you to make it work. This may include a discount on a future crystal or a refund on your shipping charges if you paid for upgraded shipping speeds. Each case is different, and some scenarios are outside of our control. Simply contact us and we'll make it right. If we have to write a handwritten apology note for who you were going to give your gift to, we can discuss that, too.

I entered the wrong delivery address! How do I change it?

We understand that mistakes happen. If your order hasn't shipped yet (typically, if you noticed on the same business day you placed your order), we can change it free of charge. However, once your order has been shipped from our facility, we can no longer change the address at no charge, as our carriers (typically UPS) charge us a hefty fee to update the delivery address. There are then two options: You can purchase the Delivery Address Update option where we will perform a delivery intercept with the carrier and reroute your shipment. Or, if your order shipped with UPS (the majority if them will), you can manage your delivery and update the address, typically free of charge, from UPS My Choice, a free portal from UPS to manage all your deliveries, not just ours. Trust us, we hate charging for this - but have no other choice if it's not caught early enough! Contact Us if you have any questions on this.

What if I hate my crystal?

We know you won't hate your crystal. But there are always exceptions. If for whatever reason you aren't satisfied, reach out to us on our Contact Us page and we'll work with you to reach a satisfactory conclusion. We'll probably have you ship the crystal back to us to see why it was hated so much, but we'll refund you for your inconvenience, minus the cost of the return shipping. We're easy to work with.

Help! My crystal broke!

It's glass! And glass breaks, so do treat your crystal with care. That's also why we use a lot of bubble wrap when we originally ship your crystal. But we empathize with accidents, because we loved making your crystal as much as you loved receiving it. Generally, we offer a big discount on replacement crystals of the same image and text you used with your original order - but we require a tragic photo of your crystal in pieces in order to do this. Reach out to us on our Contact Us page and give us a short description of what happened, and we'll follow up with a request for proof and let you know what we can do to replace your crystal for a discount. Accidents happen, we hope to make them sting a little less.

I have a shipping or return question that wasn't listed here!

If you've read this far, you probably know that the solution to any question that isn't listed here is to drop us a line on our Contact Us page and we'll reply to your individual situation personally. We'll make sure you'll be talking about us to all your friends - and our goal is to make it good things that you're talking about!
