Have a question about when your box will ship? See below on this Shipping Information page.  We have a section for each months box where we will post all important updates. We thank you for your patience and support of small business during this time.  

 ***Social Media:  We are on a social media break at this time but you can still find us here on our website and at our customer service email spearcraftbookbox@gmail.com      Thank you! *** 

When will my box ship out? We begin shipping the last day of the month.  Example the September box begins shipping on September 30th.  We ship as fast as we can each day until they are all shipped. The process usually takes 3-4 days. Please see below the date you ordered and the box you will receive.  Please understand every part of the box is delayed with the pandemic from the books we get to the items we receive.  Each step takes much longer than prepandemic and delays are very common. We ask for your patience where shipping is concerned.  Please be aware this is our tentative shipping schedule.  Our industry is facing a global shipping crisis and we will adjust the ship times of boxes accordingly.  We will ship out the the boxes as close to the original dates as possible, we must wait for all items and or books to be in hand before the monthly boxes, and special edition boxes can go out. Please bookmark this page to stay informed about all updates to your boxes.

*ACOTAR BOX SERIES ESTIMATED SHIPPING SCHEDULE-  This schedule is tentative and will be adjusted based on item delivery to us.  Last day of each month through the 5th of the next month. Example ACOTAR begins shipping October 5th. ACOMAF ships November 30th and so on. These dates are subject to change based on when we receive the items. We are currently running OVER a month behind schedule due to late items and books.

ACOTAR (Sept 30th-Oct 5th)  (update 10/3: All boxes have been shipped)

ACOMAF (November 30th- Dec 5th) -We are expecting a delay with this box as items are taking longer to arrive from over seas than expected.  This box will be delayed by at least 2 weeks after the posted ship dates.

ACOWAR (December 31st - Jan 5th)

ACOFAS (January 31st - Feb 5th)

ACOSF (February 28th- March 5th)

ACOTAR SERIES TRACKING EMAILS - If you did not receive a tracking email for your ACOTAR box it is because you ordered multiple boxes in the same order. Cratejoy only allows one tracking email per order so you will not receive tracking until your last box ships.  To avoid this in future please read the directions in the listing and at checkout and order all boxes separately.  Any boxes ordered will still ship out to you, please do not email us asking for a tracking email as we've said if you ordered more than one box in the same transaction we will only be sending the last one because once we've sent one the whole order marks as fulfilled and disappears. 


We are currently running over a month behind schedule due to late items and books. We thank you for your patience. 


Shipping time from our shop:

Please allow 3 weeks for past boxes, items, and books to ship out from our store. As we only ship twice per month.   Shipping in the US for packages to arrive via USPS takes up to 10 days. Canada has taken up to 4 weeks and International orders have seen delays to 6-8 weeks. Please keep this in mind when ordering. We can not do anything about the USPS delays. Please do not order if this is not acceptable to you as we are only able to preform bookish miracles not postal miracles.
