What is your turnaround time?

Can I get my order by a specific date? 

How long does it take to get my stickers/labels out the door? 

We get asked this question millions of times! Which is fantastic! Our customers should be excited and eager to receive their custom labels or custom stickers from us! Sticker Mountain has one of the best turnaround times in Colorado. Remembering that every sticker or label order will have different process times depending on the features involved is vital.

What is Turnaround Time?

Today we’ll walk you through the process your custom sticker or custom label takes until your product is packaged up and shipped! First, let us define turnaround time. Turnaround time is how long it takes to get an order out. To clarify, our clock starts once the artwork is approved. Depending on your artwork’s depth, it may take a couple of proofs to reach your desired label or sticker look. When the artwork is approved, completed, and shipped, it’s out of our building within 48 hours

Key Details for Turnaround Time

Before answering those questions, we need to know a few key components about your order. Once we receive your order details, we can estimate when it will be shipped and if you’ll get it by the desired date. Sticker Mountain prides ourselves on delivering quality stickers at record speeds. Here are the key components of your custom order:
