Upon placing your order with Bumby, magical things begin to happen. First, the order is received by a flock of Canadian Geese who then deliver it, by beak, to Bumby Headquarters. We then go over the orders with a cup of Tim’s, yes a double double, and get to work
Beavers sharpen our scissors with their teeth and pass items around the studio with their paddle tails. The RCMP do a stringent quality control check and we are ready to ship.
Once completed, the order is packaged and picked up by a maple syrup drinking, touque wearing Canada Post employee. It is then carried by moose to the nearest postal outlet, where it sits in a room full of poutine for 24 hours to maximize Canadian odours before being loaded on to a dog sleigh.
The dog sleigh soon departs for the border where the package is left in the storage Igloos filled with Chesterfields for comfort. Hockey players load it on their Zamboni and head for various locals including Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Flin Flan Manitoba, and Happy Adventure New Found Land (yes those are all real places). Or they go to the US border where they hand it over to USPS employees. Reeking of poutine, Tim’s coffee, maple syrup and Canadian charm they shake their heads as we say, have a good day eh!
This all happens within around 2 weeks, and shipping times vary depending on where you are located. We mark orders as “printed for cutting” when, you guessed it, we have printed the order and it gets in our to be cut pile.
When we ship, PayPal automatically sends out an email letting you know we have shipped, we usually make it to the post office before the truck arrives for the day, but sometimes it goes out the next day.
