We are happy to offer our customers 4 different shipping methods to choose from.

At PartySuppliesWorld.com, we strive to provide prompt service. Orders are packed and shipped Monday through Friday, during regular business hours. Depending on the shipping method, we pack and ship our orders within 24 to 72 hours from the time that you order your supplies. Tracking numbers are emailed directly to customers so they can track there shipments online.

1.)GROUND requires a 48 to 72 hour processing before the order is ready to ship. For example, if you ordered GROUND service on a Wednesday, your order will usually be packed and ready to be picked up by our carrier on Friday afternoon or Monday morning depending on the amount of OVERNIGHTS, UPS 2ND DAYS, AND PRIORITIES that must be processed before. From then, it takes 3-7 business days to get to its destination, depending on where you live. SEE MAP. Please note we can't guarantee the exact date of delivery.

2.)3-DAY PRIORITY is a quicker version of our popular GROUND method. Orders are processed and packed within 24 hours then take 2 to 4 days to reach their destination. Exact date of delivery can be estimated, but not guaranteed.

3. & 4.)UPS 2ND DAY AIR or OVERNIGHT are guaranteed air shipping methods. Both require 24 hours to process, pack and ship out. Please account for that when ordering 2ND DAY AIR or OVERNIGHT. If you order on a Tuesday at 11:00 a.m., it will take 24 hours to process and pack. On Wednesday, your order will ship. Unlike GROUND and PRIORITY, arrival estimates are precise and guaranteed.

Tracking numbers are emailed to customers who can then track their packages at www.ups.com or www.usps.com, depending on what service was used. Our preferred carriers are UPS and the Postal Service.

In the COMMENTS SECTION of the ordering form, you must put the date that you need your gala items by (this date must include invitations if you ordered these too). Check our map for shipping times so that you order the correct method of shipping to ensure you receive the supplies when you need them. Remember if you ordered your supplies by GROUND and the date that you need them by will not give enough time for GROUND to get them there, your order will be held up since we will have to call or email you to see if you want to upgrade the shipping method.
