THE PRESSING PROCESS
Flower preservation takes quite a bit of time because we can not rush mother nature! We want to ensure that each arrangement gets the attention it needs (and that it deserves) to be able to be a lifelong piece. We will never sacrifice quality for time. You can find updates on where your order stands and our current turnaround time below. Please remember that we are all full time students here at Flowers Of The Press and are working as hard as we can to stick to our timeline.
As always, if you have any questions, reach out to us at email@example.com
CURRENT TURNAROUND TIME IS 4-5 MONTHS
We are currently working on orders whose flowers we received in October. When your flowers are on queue we will send you an email confirming details of your order. From there it is about 1-3 weeks until you have the final product. Thank you for your love and patience! We are working towards a goal to get our turnaround time down to 3 months.
REMINDER: WE DO OFFER THE OPTION OF A RUSHED FEE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET YOUR ORDER PUSHED TO THE FRONT OF OUR DESIGNING QUEUE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS THEN REACH OUT. PRICE WILL BE DETERMINED ON HOW BUSY THE SEASON IS AND HOW QUICKLY IT NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED.
REMINDER: THIS IS SIMPLY OUR GOAL OF WHAT ORDERS TO DO WITHIN OUR TIMELINE. PLEASE ALLOW A FEW WEEKS AS A BUFFER - WE ARE ALL COLLEGE STUDENTS AND SOMETIMES CAN GET BEHIND. THIS LIST IS TO SIMPLY KEEP YOU IN THE LOOP OF WHERE YOUR ORDER IS AT IN OUR DESIGN QUEUE

A LOOK INTO OUR PROCESS & TIMELINE
Putting Into The Press
When fresh flowers arrive to us we have to get the pressed within the first 24 hours. Depending on the size of the bouquet it can take our preservation specialists 1-3 hours to properly unbox, take apart, and put your flowers into the press.
Drying & Pressing
This is where we let Mother Nature do her magic! Your flowers will take 6-8 weeks to properly dry and lose all of their moisture. We check your flowers every two days for the first week to ensure they are drying correctly. Depending on how busy our season is, we might not be able to take your flowers out of the press for 2-4 months!
Arranging & Glueing
Removing them from the press takes about 30 minutes and (once again depending on the bouquet and order) our designers can take up to 4 hours arranging and glueing your flowers. This can take more time if you opt to see the design before gluing and or if you chose to upgrade to art glass.
Framing & Shipping
As we approach the end of the arrangement process we ensure that your flowers are handled with the upmost care while framing. We have worked endlessly to nail our shipping process down but packaging up your frame still takes us 2-3 hours per one piece. Even through all of this we understand that sometimes damage can happen during transit. If that happens, please contact us immediately!
