"I placed my order on a Saturday evening (8/21) and needed it for the following Saturday (8/28). I selected regular mail though the guaranteed date was 9/2, because I was confident that it would reach me on time . The day following the order, I received an email that my order was packaged to be shipped. I got the package on Thursday (8/26). IMPRESSIVE!!!! The banner was perfect and so was my party. THANKS!"
