      Custom Smock Preorders: How It Works!

      Custom smocks are preordered items that take 30-45 days in production. Once received, our shipping and processing times apply. Shipping updates will be provided under the preorder tab on our website.

      Please note: If custom smocked items are ordered with items (e.g. printed custom towels and custom blankets), all items will ship as one order when ALL items are ready. Please place separate orders if you would like an item in your order to ship sooner than your custom smocked items. These items are ordered through  two separate vendors with different production times.

       

      Custom Printed (Towels and Blankets) Preorders: How It Works!

      For customized PRINTED towels and blankets: we place orders with our vendor on the 1st and 16th of every month. 

      • If you order is placed with us on the 1st day of the month-15th, your order will be placed in production on the 16th of the month.
      • If you place your order with us on the 16th-the last day of the month, your order will be placed in production on the 1st of the month.

      Please allow 2-3 weeks for your custom towel and name blanket order to be completed and shipped after your order has been placed in production based on your order date.

       If you have any questions, please reach out to us: camelliacityblanksandsmocks@gmail.com

       

      Monogram and Embroidery Orders: How It Works!

      **Please allow 2-3 weeks for monogram and embroidery items to be completed and shipped.** 

      When items are ready to be shipped, an email confirmation will be sent to you. Once shipped, the estimated delivery times provided by the USPS will apply according to your selected shipping option.

       

      Important Shipping Notes

      *Please note that international orders and orders using Express Shipping may incur duties. The customer is responsible to pay what is required to receive package (any added custom fees, duties and/or taxes). Camellia City Blanks and Smocks is not held responsible for incurred fees, duties and taxes. We are not held responsible for orders that are delayed due to holidays, customs clearance, weather conditions, remote area delivery, global pandemics, etc. Please take advantage of Express Delivery if your order is needed by a specific date. Again, Camellia City Blanks and Smocks is not responsible for orders not arriving within the estimated times frames provided by the USPS. We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages (porch pirating), if the package has a status of “DELIVERED” by USPS tracking system. If your package is lost or stolen, please file a claim with USPS.

      **Please note: our shipping policy refers to in stock items only. If an item is ordered when “out of stock” or “preordered”, we can not ship the item until received. When an item is back in stock and shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email.
