Turnaround Times

Being an e-commerce business with no brick and mortar retail store at this time, we ask that you please place your order by using our secure online shop. We consider orders placed once the payment has been obtained and/or a proof has been approved.


The below timelines are for products purchased through our website. Order inquiries placed via email will take additional time.
 
Custom Designs:
After placing your custom design request, we typically provide an initial proof within 5 business days (or less!)
 
Proofs:
If you would like to view a digital proof prior to beginning production, be sure to check the box before adding the item to your cart. Proofs will be sent via our secure online proof portal (proofs@theessentialmkt.com) within 1-2 business days. Please note, this adds to the turnaround times below.

Shipping:
Standard shipping is $10, with upgrade options available for selection at checkout. Delivery in Texas will typically be within 1-3 business days. If you have a specific delivery date, please include that with your order notes so we can be sure the appropriate rush options are chosen, if necessary.
