Q. Can I order Now, & have the Message in a Bottle mailed out Later?

A. YES, with TheGreetingStore.com you can place an order now and we will mail it out according to the date you entered.

Instructions: In the Option section of the item you want to purchase is an area where you can fill in the date you want your order mailed. In that section where you add the date is a Link to a Calendar so you will be able to view the desired dates. (all orders are mailed out Monday thru Friday excluding Holidays)

Q. Can I order more than 1 Message in a Bottle at a time and have each mailed to a different address?

A. YES, we want you to have it YOUR WAY. Order as many Bottles as you like and you will be able to provide us with different Personalized Greetings and mailing addresses for each. Now you can order all your Holiday Greetings or any occasion and have them sent to Friends, Family Co-Workers or anyone on your list on the Date you request.

Ordering Tips: Several helpful tips when ordering the same styled Bottle (Bottles with the same stock number). If you want to order duplicates of the same style we recommend that you add the amount you want to order to the shopping cart (3, 10 ,15) or whatever quantity and don't add a greeting or the date you want the item mailed out. When ordering the same styled bottle in quantity just add the amount you want to order and once you start to go through the Check Out process you will be able to view your complete order with each Bottle displayed in the final check out section. Each item that you ordered will appear separately (actual photo) and next to the photo is where you can add the Name, Mailing address and a Message for each bottle (when adding the greeting for the scroll it is recommended to add To and From on the greeting and indicate the Date you want it mailed out on).

If you have any questions please feel free to Contact us

I got one of your Message in a Bottle today from my boyfriend who told me he contacted your company for help. He said the Lady that he spoke to was very nice and he told her he wanted to use your Message bottle to send me a wedding proposal and she helped him write the wording for the scroll. I just wanted to say your ideas of a message bottle and the way your employees helped him is wonderful and by the way I said YES to his wedding proposal. Your company helped to make this my special day...
All my BEST to ALL of You, Barbara S... - MA
