Photo Print Delivery - What You Must Know

Photo print delivery can sometimes have its challenges. That said, ensuring we print and deliver photos on time is our top priority. Let’s face it, canvas photo print delivery is a subject most people only explore if they’ve had a bad experience. But we hope you find it useful to find out exactly what takes place in the mysterious interval between ordering and receiving your print…. Contents in Brief: How Long it Takes to Produce and Dispatch Your Canvas What Happens During the Delivery of Your Print “Where’s My Canvas?” – Delivery Times, Delays and Mishaps What Happens Immediately After You Order Your Photo Print Claims that your print enters the production cycle immediately after you've placed your order are nothing short of the truth. The photo of your choice indeed enters our database as soon as you’ve checked out and we waste no time in getting it printed on your chosen format. “That said, production times may vary depending on the product type.” While items such as canvas prints or photo blankets take no more than 24 hours to produce, it can take twice that time for products in our Photo Gifts section. Since the manufacture of certain items calls for specific materials and printing expertise, our team works across multiple production sites. Nevertheless, production time for a Photo Gifts item won’t exceed 48 hours. Still warm from the printers, your item is rushed over to be packed up. And it’s here that we delve into the mysteries of the delivery process… How Your Canvas Prints are Delivered to Your Home We give our customers a pledge that their order will be delivered within 2-6 business days of dispatch – adding up to a total wait, production time included, of 3-8 business days from purchase. We’re proud of our delivery record, although like any online shop we’re duty-bound to qualify our pledge – because in exceptional circumstances your parcel’s journey to your doorstep may take longer. “How fast your package is delivered depends to a large extent on your location. Bear with us as we explain how this works.” Now, keep in mind these two, as they’re essential to understanding the delivery process. The usual course of photo print delivery is as follows: Once we’ve prepared your product for dispatch, it’s collected by our shipping partner. The parcel then travels to the processing center where, just like any regular mail, it’s sorted according to ZIP code and other variables (e.g. size). Sorting complete, your print is all set for the voyage to its final delivery point. “In the best-case scenario, you’ll receive your print in no more than 2-3 days.” This scenario depends on the delivery happening during a calm sales period. And most of all it depends on the journey involving no more than one distribution center on the way. If your place of residence happens to be near the shipping company's headquarters, the parcel should travel directly to your home or the nearest post office. "But this might not be so, and you should be aware of other possible delivery outcomes before ordering your prints." Your package might go through several distribution centers, in each of which it gets scanned for the journey onwards. This is particularly common with parcels crossing the country from coast to coast. If your order needs to be scanned at multiple points along the way, you can expect to wait a day longer – or even more – for it to finally arrive. Orders of Multiple Prints If you buy more than a single item, there’s a chance that your prints will be travelling in separate packages. This is particularly likely if your order contains items from more than one of our product categories (Wall Decoration, Home and Lifestyle and Photo Gifts). Not only do these categories have different production times, the packaging we use also varies considerably between them. If you order, for example, a photo canvas print and a pair of photo mugs, these will need to be packed up separately because of their differing size and shape. “We aim to get each item sent off to you as soon as it’s ready. And needless to say, parcels dispatched separately are likely to arrive on different dates too.” Common Mishaps and Other Headaches Occasionally the automated scanning system will find a tracking number illegible. In these cases manual input is required, using the ZIP code instead of the tracking number. This often gives the customer the impression that their order’s come to a standstill (as there are no updates to the tracking system and it shows as permanently “in transit”) when in fact the parcel’s well on its way. Delays are also common during the busiest shopping seasons, such as the Holiday Season and the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day. These snarl-ups are often beyond the control of both the printing service and the shipping provider, as they’re caused by orders from different online stores clashing at the distribution center. However, even if you’re experiencing a severe delay, it’s almost certain that your order will find its way to you eventually. Bottom Line Naturally, our production team and our shipping partners do all they can to make the delivery process as smooth and efficient as possible. Although there’ll always be obstacles that stand in our way, at CanvasDiscount.com we always do our utmost to overcome them. Thousands of satisfied clients can attest to that. “Simple purchase, speedy delivery” is our watchword.

Are fast delivery canvas prints a myth? Are there always hidden conditions? And exactly how fast is fast? Find the answers here!

Wouldn’t it be fantastic to get your canvas prints in just 24 hours? Everybody loves quick delivery – but we’d advise against blindly trusting the most eye-catching promises. In this article, we investigate the claims made about fast delivery canvas prints, and reveal the hidden provisos behind many “next day delivery” promises. Read on, and find out who to trust!

Here are some of the topics we’ll cover in this article:

Fast Delivery vs Fast Turnaround

If a company promises quick delivery, you should double-check exactly what they’re offering. Because “delivery time” can mean either a) the time your item spends in transit before it reaches you, or b) the total time between placing your order and getting your item.

In the first case the delivery time means the shipping duration alone. In the second case the delivery time means turnaround plus shipping.

At CanvasDiscount.com, we print, frame, and dispatch canvas prints in a mere 24 hours – and thanks to a streamlined delivery system, our customers get their prints soon afterwards. So we’re proud to make our promise of a 24-hour turnaround, but we’d never claim 24-hour delivery – because the shipping time needs to be added on to that.

Still Interested in Extra Fast Delivery? Here’s What You Need to Know

It’s just not realistic for custom canvas prints to be delivered within 24 hours. If your canvas is printed to order using your own photo, manufacturing alone will take at least 24 hours. (To our knowledge, we’re the only custom canvas provider who can claim even 24-hour turnaround.)

On the other hand, if you’re buying mass-produced canvas prints, 24-hour delivery is at least feasible. Normally the print you want will already be printed by the time you order, sitting in the warehouse ready for dispatch.

But even for mass-produced prints, 24-hour delivery often comes with certain conditions. To receive your canvas prints in just one day, you might need to:

To sum up: 24-hour delivery isn’t a complete myth, but it’s always a bit of a lottery whether you’ll actually receive your print the next day. To avoid disappointment, it’s always best to read the terms and conditions first. And if it seems like a company’s making misleading claims, trust your instincts and steer clear!

Be Extra Careful When Looking for Last-Minute Gifts

If you’re buying canvas prints as gifts for Christmas, Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, it’s even more important to do your research – as demand for custom photo products soars around these times. Even if a printing company can usually deliver within 24 hours, any production backlog could mean your delivery is several days late.

Our advice is to choose a company with guaranteed delivery in time for big holidays. You’ll need to place your order before a certain date to qualify, but if you order in time you’ll have the peace of mind that only a delivery guarantee can provide.

Here at CanvasDiscount.com we regularly update our Shipping Info page with guaranteed-delivery deadlines for all the big dates of the year. You can find the current deadlines here.

No Need to Choose Between Quality and Quick Delivery

So, how fast exactly are fast delivery canvas prints? They can be very fast indeed, and even 24-hour delivery is possible – but only for mass-produced prints, and rarely without conditions and caveats attached.

Our advice is to play it safe. Choose a respected provider making proven claims over a shady concern making extravagant promises which aren’t always what they seem.

At CanvasDiscount.com our canvas prints are made to order every time – but we still offer a 24-hour turnaround. And that comes with a quick, realistic shipping time of 1-4 business days to the contiguous USA – without hidden conditions attached.
