Our goal is to ship your order as quick as possible. The more frequently ordered state shapes in the 12" and 18" sizes are typically kept in stock and will ship out in 2 to 3 business days. The less commonly ordered state shapes and all 24" size states are made to order which can take 3-5 days for production, before being shipped. All 36" and 48" state shapes are custom made as ordered, so they typically have a 5-10 day lead time. If you need delivery by a specific date please contact us and we will try to accommodate your request. Custom orders are welcome.
