March 2024 Update!

Due to our recent Rebecca Ross launch, OwlCrate Jr box sale. and past boxes drop, processing orders may take a bit longer than usual. 

Once your order has been processed, you will receive your shipping notification and tracking email.

Hey bookworms!

During the past few years, we have faced many shipping challenges - mostly due to supply chain demands. While we're happy to report that shipping delays are much less common these days, sometimes an item can take a little longer than usual to reach our warehouse. We will always update this page to make sure you have the most up-to-date information regarding your shipment - even if it is to say everything is on schedule!

All shipping schedules are listed below. We typically ship monthly subscription orders between the 15th and 25th of the month.

If you ever have any additional questions, please email Ozwald and his team of owls are always happy to help!

  • Shop orders are typically processed and shipped within 2-6 business days. There are occasions when an order will be processed the same day as it was purchased. Our little owls are always hard at work!
  • Once an order has been processed, we are no longer able to cancel/refund that order.

Special Edition Books and Boxes:

  • Our special edition pre-orders are purchased and shipped separately from our regular monthly boxes.

  • After that main ship date, any extra books and boxes purchased in the shop will be processed like a regular shop order.
