All of Bubblegum Basics products are made-to-order products, personalized to your exact specifications. Because of this, we have a stated production time of between 7 and 10 business days (this does not include weekends). We tend to be faster, but this is our normal time. This production time does not include shipping time. When ordering, please take into consideration our production time and the time it will take for shipping if you are ordering for a birthday or special event. NOTE: Due to the special printing process used on our OtterBox® and Melamine products, production time can be up to 2 weeks.
Certain peak seasons and Holiday periods can increase production time. Also, on occasion, some orders just take longer due to circumstances beyond our control. We suggest contacting our Customer Support Team if your product does not arrive 12 days after you placed the order. Also, if you purchase a Proof with your order, this can increase production time by a day or two.
Our Holidays include the following:
- President’s DaySpring Break - TBD every year
- Memorial Day
- July 4th
- Labor Day
- Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day
- Thanksgiving Day through the following Monday every year
- December 23 through January 4th every year

Because all of our products are personalized and designed just for you, products cannot be changed, cancelled or refunded after the order has been submitted and payment received. Please make sure before you place your order that you are happy with the customization options you have chosen and the product you are purchasing. We only accept returns if:
- A product has a manufacturing defect, in which case we will accept a return for 90 days from the date of receipt.
- A mistake that we make resulting in the shipment of an incorrect product to you. In these cases, we will accept a return for 30 days from the date of receipt.
Defective and mistake products will be replaced with the product as originally ordered and cannot be refunded or exchanged for another product.
If you need to return a product, please contact Customer Support to get a RMA, or Return Merchandise Authorization, number.
Please be aware that colors can vary in personalized printing and color variations do happen. Due to monitor calibration, the exact color you see on your monitor might NOT be the exact color that is printed on your product. Two products printed with the same color, but printed at different times or with different printers, might have a slight color variation. Products that are printed on different material may also have a slight color variation.
This should NOT be viewed as a mistake or defect and unless there is a significant color variance, a product may not be returned due to slight color variation. Please be aware of this before purchasing.
