Q: How long will it take to receive my order?

A: Every order is custom, and to ensure accurate handling of each order, normal processing time—pulling your fabric/material from the warehouse, cutting it to your specified length and packaging—is generally 2-3 business days. Of course we work hard to get your order to you as quickly as possible and sometimes processing time is notably shorter! Transit time depends on your location and service you have chosen.

Please see Shipping and Returns for more details.

Q: Can you ship my order out same day?

Q: Can Big Duck Canvas custom dye fabric?

A: Yes! We offer custom fabric color dye lots starting at a 500-yard minimum. Please call our sales team today at 1-800-704-6138 to learn more about pricing and lead times for your custom-color fabric!

Q: What is a factory second?

A: A factory second is a “second quality good” meaning that there may be flaws, blemishes, seams or noticeable dye lot (color) variations from one roll to the next. This can be purely aesthetic, such as a smudge or stain on the fabric, or it can be an issue with the actual weave such as a mis-woven yarn or small tear. It’s important to consider these possibilities when purchasing second quality and to account for this when buying yardage. If you need a large quantity of fabric without these types of inconsistencies, call us at 1-800-704-6138 and speak with a sales representative to see if the factory second you’re looking to purchase will work for your project. For smaller projects, factory seconds can be a great bargain as potential flaws often can easily be worked around!

Q: Where’s my refund?

A: We want you to be happy with your purchase, and we understand that not every purchase works out as planned or sometimes changes need to be made. If an exchange is not the answer and a refund is warranted, allow 24-48 hours after receipt and inspection of returned merchandise. Please remember: We cannot accept returns or offer refunds for any material that has been washed, cut or altered in any way, and all "seconds," "factory seconds" and discounted fabrics are final sale!

Q: Why can’t I use my coupon code?

A: At Big Duck Canvas, we occasionally run a coupon or special offering for our amazing customers! If you have joined our email list, you will periodically receive communications regarding special buys, discounts, or other promotional items. If a coupon is required to take advantage of the promotion, you will receive a coupon code which must be entered during the checkout process in the box marked “Promo/Gift Certificate.” After entering the code, click the “Apply” button and you will see the appropriate discount applied to your order.

Important Note About Coupons:
We are unable to apply coupons to any previous order. Refunds will not be provided in lieu of forgotten or unused coupon codes. Coupon codes have no actual cash value. If you have questions or concerns about a promotion, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-704-6138.
