SpearCraft Book Box Shipping Information

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.

 ***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-   All sales of all preorder Acotar boxes are FINAL SALE and non refundable.  The shipping schedule for this series of boxes is tentative and subject to change as stated in the listing.  All updates will be posted to our shipping information page here.  This schedule is tentative and will be adjusted based on item delivery to us.   We are currently running OVER THREE MONTHS behind this schedule due to late items, vendors facing covid, and shipping delays from the global shipping crisis.  What used to take 8 weeks to receive is now taking 14+ weeks to receive. Some items were turned around by customs and other items like the blanket were lost on the container ship. We are very frustrated by the situation and working to acquire new items to replace those.


ACOTAR (shipping through Nov 5th)  (update 11/4 All boxes have been shipped)



ACOMAF (February 2022) -(Update! all boxes have been shipped 5/7/2022)



The rest of the boxes in the series are running well over THREE months behind schedule with paper shortages, covid, vendor delays and shipping delays.


ACOWAR (March 2022) We are currently running OVER THREE MONTHS behind this schedule above due to late items. Now shipping in August.

ACOSF (July 2022) We are currently running OVER THREE MONTHS behind this schedule above due to late items. Now shipping in December.


We are currently running OVER THREE MONTHS behind this schedule posted due to late items, items turned around by custom, and a complete loss of our blanket!  We are working to acquire new replacement items.


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. 


Other boxes for 2022


Hocus Pocus Boxes Pre Order (April)  ships out in October 2022

Shipping time from our shop for past items and boxes:

Please allow 3 weeks for past boxes, items, black friday orders, 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.


 *Shipping and Handling charges - Our shipping charges help cover the cost of boxes, warehouse, storage, and freight charges as the warehouse pallets the order via truck to the local post office which incurs fees.  Then the boxes are shipped via media mail from the post office.  


Black Friday Orders:  All orders ship within 3 weeks of purchase as it says on our website.  Printed shipping does not mean your item has shipped.  We pre print shipping, send to our facility and they pack and ship it within the 3 week timeframe.  Once shipped your order will arrive in 2 to 10 days depending on if its priority or media mail in the US.
