Holiday FAQ

Hey there! Got a question for me about the upcoming 2018 winter holiday season? Check out the FAQ below to see if I’ve answered it already! If you don’t see your question, please feel free to e-mail me at hello@jbeoin.com.

What’s the last day for shipping to make sure my package arrives before my holiday deadline?

Great question! A general rule for holiday shipping deadlines is that you should order at least 2 weeks (10 business days) ahead of the day you need it for domestic orders and at least 6 weeks (30 business days) ahead for international orders. I package all orders on Tuesdays and ship all orders every Wednesday*, so please be sure to account for that in your calculations. If you place an order on a Tuesday, it may not be packaged in time for Wednesday’s deliveries, so please follow the guides below for the best dates to order by.

If you have a holiday that you celebrate in the months of October through February and don’t see it listed below, please send me an e-mail with information about the holiday so I can add it to the list! :] [smiley]

Please note that I cannot be held responsible for any packages that do not arrive on time due to unforeseen events such as weather issues, worker strikes, truck shortages, and so on.

Here are the suggested domestic order deadlines for the 2018/early 2019 winter holidays :

  • Hanukkah (December 2nd): Order by no later than November 12th
  • Winter solstice (December 21st): Order by no later than December 3rd
  • Christmas (December 25th): Order by no later than December 10th
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th): Order by no later than December 10th
  • Gregorian New Year (January 1st): Order by no later than December 10th
  • Lunar New Year (February 5th): Order by no later than January 21st

Here are the suggested international order deadlines for the 2018/early 2019 winter holidays :

  • Hanukkah (December 2nd): Order by no later than October 8th
  • Winter solstice (December 21st): Order by no later than October 29th
  • Christmas (December 25th): Order by no later than November 5th
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th): Order by no later than November 5th
  • Gregorian New Year (January 1st): Order by no later than November 5th
  • Lunar New Year (February 5th): Order by no later than December 17th

*Given the busy levels of the holidays, I will do my best to ship more frequently when my disability allows, but you should count on Wednesdays being the day of shipping for most weeks. :] [smiley]

What’s the last day you’ll accept commissions for the holidays?

Commission deadlines, much like the above shipping deadlines, are dependent on what holiday you want them for and whether you require domestic or international shipping.

Here are the domestic commission acceptance cut offs for the 2018/early 2019 winter holidays:

  • Hanukkah (December 2nd): Last commission accepted October 29th
  • Winter solstice (December 21st): Last commission accepted November 12th
  • Christmas (December 25th): Last commission accepted November 12th
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th): Last commission accepted November 12th
  • Gregorian New Year (January 1st): Last commission accepted November 12th
  • Lunar New Year (February 5th): Last commission accepted January 7th

Here are the international commission acceptance cut offs for the 2018/early 2019 winter holidays :

  • Hanukkah (December 2nd): Last commission accepted September 24th
  • Winter solstice (December 21st): Last commission accepted October 15th
  • Christmas (December 25th): Last commission accepted October 15th
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th): Last commission accepted October 15th
  • Gregorian New Year (January 1st): Last commission accepted October 15th
  • Lunar New Year (February 5th): Last commission accepted December 3rd

These dates reflect the anticipated time for each commission’s creation and delivering on time for the holiday. If you would like to commission a piece that doesn’t need to be done for one of the holidays listed above but sometime between September to December, please contact me so I can see if I can fit you in and give you a deadline. :] [smiley] If you would like to commission a piece for another occasion anytime in January, you should commission me by no later than November 12th for domestic orders or October 15th for international.

I’m ordering something as a gift. Do you offer direct mailing services to the gift receiver? Do  you offer gift wrapping?

I sure do! There’s a gift order service option in my shop you can add to your cart with the purchase you want to send as a gift.

Will you be running any kind of sale or offering any coupons/discounts?

While this is unlikely given that I’m a freelance artist, never say never! Signing up for my newsletter is a good way to ensure you don’t miss any last minute offers. You can also fill out my Representation survey for a 5% discount in my shop that’s good through December 31st– be sure to include your e-mail if you do so I can send you your code!

What’s your Return Policy?

You can check out the specifics on my Return Policy page!

What’s your Shipping Policy? Where do you ship from?

You can check out my Shipping Policy page for that info!

How do I take care of any art I purchase from you?

Great question! Check out my Product Care page for details.

How do you use your profit?

After taking expenses into account, I split any profit between myself and reparations to individual Black and Native people. Priority is given those who are additionally marginalized, such as transgender folks– especially trans women and trans femmes, disabled folks, queer folks, single mothers, and more.

In order to do direct action, this reparations money goes directly to the individuals themselves and does not go to charities, groups, or organizations; any donations to such groups or causes comes strictly from the portion I use to pay myself.
