This is the listing is for a rush order. If you need any diaper cake within a weeks time, you MUST purchase this rush order upgrade. By purchasing this upgrade, it bumps your order to the first in line on my list. My current processing time is 1-2 weeks.
You may be also required to pay for express shipping, and I cannot guarantee your order will get to you in time with regular USPS ground shipping.
Upgraded USPS Priority shipping is available for an additional charge, and is guaranteed for 1-3 day shipping through USPS.
Diaper Cakes - All orders are shipped through USPS. Generally, most of my orders go out on Fridays and Saturdays. Once your order has been shipped, it can take anywhere from 2-7 days to reach you. Depending on where you live in relation to Illinois. Once your order is shipped you will receive a tracking number, and you will be able to track your package.
If you need your order in less than 2 weeks you will need to purchase priority shipping. Priority shipping is generally only a few dollars extra, and guarantees you will have your package in 1-2 business days (Through USPS) from the time of shipment.
Payment is due at time of purchase. If you need to cancel for any reason please contact me within 24 hours of the purchase and I will be able to cancel the order. After 24 hours I cannot guarantee it has already been made or in the process of being made and I will not be able to cancel the order at that time. I accept payment through Etsy.

**IF you require priority shipping and do not purchase it at check out, I will have to cancel your order, and you will need to re-purchase it with the priority shipping.
Once the package leaves our studio, I am not responsible for lost or damaged items, due to the shipping process. I do pack all my diaper cakes with either bubble wrap around them or packaging paper, to keep everything secure. Paper shred may become displaced during shipping, and can simply be pushed back into place on the diaper cakes.
