I had placed the order and sent in my ideas for a custom order 5 months in advance to be ready for the last week in October. Which I’m glad I did, since I didn’t get a response the 1st week in October. Not sure what cause the delay, whether it was family issues or backed up orders the process was quite slow. But the shipping process was extremely fast, within four business days of payment I had received my cards. Each in a separate plastic sleeve and all in a small personal box. I’m very impressed at the artwork and exact design, definitely worth the money and time!
