Delivery Locations

We suggest shipping to a location where you know somebody will be available to receive the package, for example, the recipient's workplace. UPS may leave gifts at a destination in which no one is home. We cannot provide refunds for deliveries where no recipient is available. Keep in mind, our gifts are perishable and shouldn't be exposed to the elements for too long, especially in warm or freezing weather conditions.

Warm Weather Shipping

We are experienced in shipping our products to warm climates. During the summer months and as the weather dictates, we ship our products in specially designed cartons with ice packs, and because of this, you will see an increase in shipping costs during that time period. To ensure product quality, we may not offer shipping services like 3-Day Air or long distance ground shipping during warm weather periods. Please see seasonal dates below to see when we may offer shipping restrictions and insulate your shipments:

  • AL, AZ, CA, FL, LA, MS, NM, NV, TX require warm-climate insulated shippers from March 30 - November 13 and 3-Day Air and Ground may be unavailable.
  • AR, CO, GA, KS, OK, SC, TN, UT require warm-climate insulated shippers from May 1 - October 31 and 3-Day Air and Ground may be unavailable.

Shipping Delays

Though UPS is an extremely reliable shipping agent, there are times when even they are unable to provide on-time delivery, such as during extreme weather situations, national emergencies, etc. We ask for your patience during these times and promise to get your gift to its destination as soon as possible.

Due to the shipping volume of our partners and the potential for seasonal weather delays, we are actively monitoring orders and making adjustments to meet requested delivery dates. As a result, it is possible an order may arrive 1-2 days ahead of a requested date.

Order Modifications

In order to allow us to prepare your order for shipment we are unable to change orders within 24 hours of scheduled shipment. If you wish to make a modification to an order The Affy Tapple Customer Service team can assist with any modifications needed to existing orders prior to that time.
