That’s going to depend on a few things:
- what product(s) are you getting (different products and labs have different production and shipping times)
- are we coming up on a major holiday? (near major holidays my workload is larger, lab production times get longer, and sometimes shipping takes longer)
- are you willing to pay a rush fee? (most of the labs I deal with will put you at the head of the production line for a rush fee, and I’m happy to do the same; there’s also the option for overnight or second-day air delivery from the lab)
If you don’t want to pay rush fees, it’s usually best to book at least 4-6 weeks before you need physical products.
Digital orders can be turned around much more quickly, and can be delivered in 2 weeks without rush fees (may require additional time near major holidays).
If you’re a last-minute type of shopper, don’t worry: I AM happy to do very last-minute sessions as long as my schedule allows! Give me a call and we can discuss how to make it happen for you, no matter how short your deadline.
