COVID FAQs and Updates
To our customers:
As part of New York City Phase 1, as a manufacturer, we have been permitted by the government to reopen our studio and resume production! In order to ensure the safety of our employees and community, our will be working in staggered shifts, wearing face masks, and all surfaces will be regularly disinfected. Our building management, Industry City, will be making sure all common areas such as bathrooms and hallways are disinfected as well. Because of this limited capacity, please anticipate about 1-2 weeks for order delivery. If you placed an order prior to June 8th when we reopened, your order will be shipped out by June 19th, if not sooner.

Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Answered:
When will my order ship?
Please expect 1-2 weeks for order delivery. If you placed an order before June 8th, expect your order to ship by June 19th if not earlier. Thank you so much for your patience!
How long will shipping take?
We use USPS and UPS, who are both experiencing holiday season levels of packages arriving at their facilities each day. The standard transit time for USPS is 1 to 3 business days, but they are currently experiencing delays of about 2 to 5 additional business days. The standard lead time for UPS is 1 to 5 business days. They are not experiencing any delays, but they have suspended their delivery day “service guarantee” until further notice.
Why won’t my tracking information update?
Because of the overwhelming amount of packages at USPS and UPS facilities, it is taking longer to get every package scanned at each point in the transit process. Please reach out directly to USPS or UPS if you are having an issue with your tracking information.
What are you doing to ensure that your employees are safe and that my package is safe?
Our employees are staying at least 6 feet apart at all times. They are wearing masks and gloves, as well as consistently disinfecting high touch areas and washing hands. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization have stated the chances of COVID-19 contaminating cardboard packages is low.
