We have such a problem with USPS in delays of customer order. But we strive to do our best.

A customer Testimonial sent to me today April 12, 2021

Thanks for the follow-up.  The second batch you sent did arrive in good order and in a timely fashion.  I think I had those within 2 or 3 days of when you sent them.  The original package that was sent in the mailer finally did arrive at the end of last week almost a week later than the second batch. ….  I have used Herald King decals for years and will continue to do so and I will tell other folks about your great customer service and trying to make things right.

March 26th, 2021 –USPS has had some major disruptions in service. WE expect more delays. They have a daily update of locations and reasons for delays by zipcode and cities and States,

You can find info using this link if your order is delayed.

Unfortunately, Herald King Decals can’t make USPS go any faster. The issue is that our rigid non-bendable mailers are non-machinable, so we will be using plain envelopes to mail our decals as long as the total decal wt is under 1 oz. and charge only $1 to ship.

Customers who want tracking will have to pay the $8.50 for priority 2-day delivery for a small flat rate box. These are challenging times and we thank you for your continued loyalty.
