Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout. Estimated delivery times are based on your location. Delivery times may be impacted by delays such as weather, power outages, mechanical failures, service alerts, misroutes, and other unforeseen situations. Please plan ahead and leave a few extra days for delivery if possible.
Ground Shipping Costs
Ground delivery charges are flat rate. Flat rate means you are not charged based on the weight or order size. Our flat rate for ground shipping is $8.92 to mainland USA, no matter the size or weight of your order.
Ground Shipping Times
Smaller Orders Weighing Less Than 1 LB.
Orders weighing under 1 Lb (approximately 18 to 40 inch foil balloons or 2 bags of latex balloons) are shipped with USPS Priority Post. Delivery times with Priority Post are 3 to 7 business days. Orders weighing less than 1 LB do not come with guaranteed delivery times. If you need a smaller order delivered by a specific date, please put a note in the shipping comments when you place your order. We will call and e-mail you if we do not think we can meet your required delivery date.
Orders Weighing Over 1 LB
Ground orders weighing over 1 LB are shipped with FedEx or UPS. Below you will find the FedEx ground shipping map, from our warehouse to all 48 contiguous US states. Please do not rely on this map if you need immediacy. Always contact us for the most accurate shipping times. You can create a support ticket, call us at 1-866-330-1272, or contact us on live chat.
When creating a support ticket about shipping times make sure to include:
1. What is the latest date you need your order by?
2. What is your zip code?
We also ship with UPS Ground. UPS Ground has similar delivery times as the map below. Some delivery times will be slower to a few zip codes. If you have left a note specifying your order by a certain date, we will choose the courier that will arrive the fastest.
Shipping Time Example
Orders will arrive on specified delivery days, as long as there are no problems or delays with shipping. Delivery times are not guaranteed, and are based on business days. The day your order is processed does not count as a business day. An order shipped on Monday to an address that takes four business days would arrive on Friday, assuming there are no unforeseen delays.
Please always plan ahead and leave a few extra days just in case.
Express Shipping Costs and Shipping Times
Express Priority shipping to anywhere in the mainland is typically next business day. Express shipping is calculated by both weight and/or dimensional weight. This is calculated at checkout. Certain items that are bulky cost more to ship. Express shipping starts at $19.84 for 218 flat packed 18 inch foil balloons, the equivalent weight of 50 to 60 jumbo foil balloons, or 8 bags of 12 inch 100 count latex balloons. For each additional 218 flat packed 18 inch foil balloons or equivalent, the cost is $12.92 extra. Therefore, the rates are $19.84, $32.76, $45.68, and $58.60 for express shipping.
2 day shipping is expected to arrive in 2 business days (the day you place your order does not count as a business day). 2 day shipping starts at $15.92 for 218 flat packed 18 inch foil balloons, the equivalent weight of 50 to 60 jumbo foil balloons, or 8 bags of 12 inch 100 count latex balloons. For each additional 218 flat packed 18 inch foil balloons or equivalent, the cost is $9.00 extra. Therefore, the rates are $15.92, $24.92, $33.92, and $42.92.
The checkout will not allow you to express ship weights, balloon sticks, cups, or ribbon. Please contact us if you need those items express shipped, and we will manually calculate your shipping costs. Tracking information is e-mailed to you the same day your order ships.
