The idea for the State Flower Collection came from a quote I read when traveling through the beautifully flowered highways in East Texas near Austin. The quote is by Lady Bird Johnson which reads, "Where flowers bloom so does hope." I found the quote to be truly inspiring and the starting point for the collection. As First Lady, Lady Bird started a beautification project to improve conditions in Washington D.C. by planting millions of flowers. She also was instrumental in promoting the Highway Beautification Act, which sought to beautify the nation's highway system. What a neat lady!
Out of inspiration from Lady Birds' quote, each art print comes with a small pouch of wildflower seeds with her quote letterpressed on it. With a dash of wildflower seeds to start, this collection is created to encourage each of us to beautify our communities and neighborhoods with not only flowers but love.
We try to ship out orders as soon as we can. Currently, Thimblepress ships with USPS or UPS for domestic and international orders. Our shipping window for customer order processing is 1-3 business days. That is the time it takes for us to prepare a customer order, not the time it takes to ship and get to the customer. If you have a specific deadline for your order, we advise you to contact Thimblepress at firstname.lastname@example.org before placing the order to inquire and request a specific ship date. There is always the option to choose a faster shipping time at checkout. These shipping times vary from customer order fulfillment and shipping times.
We offer free shipping on domestic orders of $75 or more. Thimblepress shipping rates are based on the location we are shipping to in combination with order weight and the level of shipping you choose. An email confirmation will be sent to you after your product has shipped. Rates are determined by UPS or USPS (we have no control over rates). You can visit USPS.com or UPS.com for more details.
In addition, the items you purchase are hand-packed (with love!) by someone on our Thimblepress team. One or more people are involved in the multi-step process of packaging, boxing, weighing, checking, double-checking, and shipping your Thimblepress goods to you! Several materials are involved including boxes, tape, bubble bag mailers, stay flats, cello sleeves, cardboard backing, packaging materials, shipping labels, etc! Please know that we try to use the least expensive shipping method to keep costs to a minimum. And throughout the year, we offer FREE Shipping coupon codes (USA only) to let you know how much we appreciate you!
