Hey bookworms! Since the start of the pandemic we have faced many challenges when it comes to shipping. As of right now we are experiencing difficulties with delays in receiving our items from our suppliers due to the increased demands on manufacturing and not having enough containers and boats to meet this demand. We are doing everything we can to plan even further in advance to help decrease these delays, but we are anticipating that some of our upcoming boxes and books may need to ship late. We will be updating this page whenever we have new information to share. If you have any additional questions about anything please don't hesitate to reach us at We're here to help! 

Worried your OwlCrate/OwlCrate Jr gift may not be delivered by a certain date? We have created printable and downloadable gift enclosures. Non-holiday versions can be found here and here. Print one out and slip it into a card, or email it so your gift recipient has something fun to open that lets them know bookish magic is on the way!

  • US Shipping Updates

  • We wanted to let you know that in these unprecedented times we have seen customers experiencing delivery delays, despite our boxes being shipped via priority mail. USPS has been overwhelmed with packages this year due to COVID and many packages are arriving late. We’ve also noticed tracking information is often updated sporadically or not at all, but packages still arrive. This is an issue nationwide and all businesses are being affected.

  • Thank you all so much for your patience and support! We feel so grateful to be able to send you magical things in the mail, and we hope these bookish packages bring you extra joy. We're all in this together! Stay safe, and happy reading!
