One of the advantages of TreeRing is that your school community can purchase books at any time. Even after you set the book to print ready and the deadline for free shipping to the school has passed. These orders are After Deadline Orders.
Here is clarification on the timeline of orders and the shipping details for Before Deadline Orders and After Deadline Orders.
Before Deadline Orders
Books ordered on or before you set the book to Print Ready (which should be your All Pages Print Ready Date) will be shipped in bulk to the school with free shipping. You will receive the books on or before your Delivery Date. These dates can be found in your Chief Editor Dashboard.
After Deadline Orders
When someone in your school community orders a book after you set your book to Print Ready, the shipping of the book will be handled one of two ways. Their order will either:
- Be shipped to the school OR
- Be shipped to the person’s home
The shipping location is based on the date the person places their order. Here’s how it works:
- If a book is ordered after you set the book to Print Ready, but before one week prior to your school’s Delivery Date, the book will be shipped to the school.
- If a book is ordered after you set the book to Print Ready, but after one week prior to your school’s Delivery Date, the book will be shipped to the person’s home. The person placing the order will be prompted to enter their shipping address at this time.
In both cases, the person will have to pay a shipping charge.
So, please ask your front office to be on the lookout for the individual books and to get them to you so you can hand them out with the rest of the books. The easiest way to spot a shipment of TreeRing yearbooks is to look for our TreeRing packaging tape!
