Good Things Come In Orange Packages.

The arrival date for your order will depend on how long it takes us to make your custom creation and what shipping method you choose.


Helping You Prepare for the Holidays

This holiday season, Shutterfly and the entire retail industry are seeing high demand and extraordinary global supply chain events that could cause potential delays. You can be confident that we're working around the clock to get that orange package to you as soon as possible. We encourage you to order as soon as possible to ensure you have all your holiday gifts ready.

Most orders are delivered before the "latest delivery date" you see when you place your order, but delivery dates are best estimates and all delivery services continue to experience delays. The busiest shipping time of the year is between 11/25 - 12/25 - so make your orders early. We appreciate your patience and are working to get your orders to you as soon as possible.

*PO Box, U.S. Protectorates, APO/FPO, Canadian and International Shipping

Expedited, Rush and Super Rush delivery are not available for:

  • PO Boxes
  • APO/FPO or other U.S. armed forces addresses
  • Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa or other U.S. protectorates

Military Addresses

Delivery estimates are delivery times to the military mail system. At that point, the order is out of our hands, and delivery time to the final recipient can be influenced by many factors. We are therefore unable to provide tracking or a further time estimate. To avoid delays, when using an APO/FPO address, use "United States" as the country, regardless of the location of the recipient.

International shipping

We ship internationally to over 100 countries around the world. Shipping prices and transit time varies by country. We use a delivery expediting service that delivers directly to the destination country's mail service. This service is as fast or faster than airmail. Estimated delivery times to international addresses are 5-8 business days from when the order is shipped.

Major cities and industrial areas will be a bit faster; rural and non-industrialized areas may be a bit slower. During holiday periods, there may be additional delays due to volume. We are not responsible for such delays. International shipments may be subject to taxes, duties, or other customs fees upon delivery. The recipient is responsible for any such fees at the point of delivery.

Due to existing trade restrictions and regulations, we currently do not offer shipping to the following countries: Belarus, Burundi, Central African Republic, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, North Korea, Russia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, Zimbabwe.

Mail For Me (Direct Mail Card Service)

If you want to get your cards delivered as quickly and easily as possible, we can address, stamp, and mail your cards directly to the recipients. The envelope is printed in Arial font and mailed with a regular USPS stamp. Production with delivery time (domestic) is 5-10 business days.

Orders with glitter cards, custom envelopes, colored envelopes, or slip-in liners are not available with Mail For Me service. Not available for international orders.

In-Store Pickup

In as little as one hour, 4x6 glossy prints can be printed and picked up at your local Walgreens or CVS Pharmacy.

During the the checkout process, click the "1-hour pick up available" link under eligible 4x6 prints to search for your preferred store by zip code. If you do not see your preferred store listed, they either do not have an in-store photo lab, or are currently unavailable to accept online orders.

Before you submit your order, you will be given an estimated price and pickup time for your prints. No payment is required at that time—simply place your order and you will receive an email confirmation that your order was received at your selected store. You will pay for your prints at the store at the time of pickup. You may wish to call the store first to ensure that your order is ready.

Please note:

  • Only 4x6 glossy prints are available for in-store pickup; matte finish is not available.
  • Backprinting is not available on in-store pickup orders.
  • Orders containing 99 or more prints will take up to 24 hours to fulfill.
  • In-store pickup is not currently available outside of the United States.
