It's the Holly Jolliest time of the year and your pals here at Sourpuss want to make sure that your season is extra merry! Here are a few of our best tips to make sure that your order goes as smoothly as can be & arrives to you in time for your holiday celebration! Don't see the answer to your burning question? Email us at and we'll be able to help you! Placing Your Order
  • All orders are processed in the order that they're received – first come, first served! We recommend ordering early!
  • Orders are printed Monday-Friday at 9AM Eastern time. Orders placed after 9AM EST, will be printed with our next batch the following business day.
  • During the Holidays, our order processing time averages 3-5 Business Days before shipment!
  • Log into your Sourpuss Account BEFORE placing your order! You'll be able to get status updates on your order – we'll even include tracking details as soon as your package hits the road! Don't have one? Set one up – it's free & we have a loyalty program.
  • Paying with Paypal? Be sure to double check your address details – old addresses are sometimes auto-populated! Don't send your new goodies to your old stomping grounds! Notice a problem? Email right away.
Order Status
  • Once in your Account, if your order is listed as 'Processing', it means that we're currently getting your goodies picked & prepped for shipment.
  • If your order is listed as 'On Hold', this means that we may be trying to get in contact with you about your order. Please check your email to see if we've been in touch or give us a ring at 856-406-4325 to check in!
  • If your order says 'Complete' – hooray, your package has been shipped!
Your Shipment
  • Please double check your shipping address (including apartment, suite or unit number) before placing your order!
  • Moving in the near future? Make sure that your package is being sent to an address where you'll be able to receive it.
