Formative Designs Made to Order Goods

Unless otherwise noted, when we get an order for one of Formative's new line of made to order or printed to order items, the items go into a manufacturing queue in the factory we employ in California. 

We take about 2-7 business days to create apparel products (such as leggings, Ts, and beach blankets) and 2-5 business days for non-apparel (mugs, posters etc.) products. More than a half of our orders are shipped within 3 business days or less, and about 97% of our orders are shipped within 5 business days.

Sending a gift and missing your deadline? Not a problem! Send us an email at with your recipient's name and email and we will send them a personalized email or postcard to let them know their gift is on the way! They'll know how much you care and know to be on the lookout for your thoughtful gift!
