What are CustomCat’s Shipping Rates? How much does each rate cost? How long does each method take to deliver?
Here’s a step-by-step guide on all things shipping with CustomCat.

Shipping Rates

Please download our list of Shipping Rates by Product & refer to the Shipping Options chart below.

We put together a few scenarios to illustrate how your shipping rate is calculated for orders containing multiple products. When an order contains products from more than one category, the rate for the “First Product” will be the most expensive category & the rate/s for the “Additional Products” will be whatever the rate is for each “Additional Product”.

Let’s take a look at another set of examples.

Available Shipping Options

Economy (Default)

Economy method is the most cost-effective form of shipping. It is best used with customers who aren’t in rush to get their products delivered. Transit time averages 2-6 business days. **Economy transit times are not guaranteed & may increase during the Winter Holiday season.**


Our ground shipping option is UPS Ground — transit time is displayed in the map below & depends on proximity to Detroit, MI.

**As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, UPS Ground transit estimates are not guaranteed.**

If you choose Ground Shipping for Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Rico, you will automatically be upgraded to 2-day shipping.
Orders that utilize Ground shipping cannot be delivered to a PO Box.

When selecting 2-day shipping, your package will be delivered within two business days after production is complete. Orders shipped with 2-Day shipping cannot be delivered to a PO Box. Delivery performed Monday – Friday only.


Overnight shipping means your package will be delivered standard overnight as soon as production is complete. These packages cannot be delivered to a PO box. Delivery performed Monday – Friday only.


Ship time ranges from 1-4 weeks depending on proximity to Detroit, MI & the destination country’s policies related to international shipments in the wake of COVID-19. Due to the rapidly changing international shipping landscape as related to COVID-19, international transit times may be extended.


The standard & upgraded shipping prices are different for canvas & posters. To view pricing, review the charts below. Please note that Canvas & Posters always ship alone in their own protective packaging — this also means a customer who orders two pieces of canvas will receive two separate shipments & two unique tracking numbers.


Canvas Shipping Rates

Great Britain

For any countries not listed above, tracking stops once the package is handed over to the country’s international carrier. For these countries, we do not receive additional tracking updates, therefore we are not liable once they have been transferred to the international carrier.

One thought on “Shipping

  1. Thanks for sharing this with me. I just started Custom Cat in my store and was thinking about changing my Shipping Policy due this change. My store has been in operation for over a year, and due to this pandemic I had to change the focus of the store.
