Package includes individual personalized release envelopes with your choice of envelope color and inscription. Or add a mass release by skipping the envelope option and adding a Decorator Box to your package for an additional cost. If you'd prefer a mass release, Decorator Boxes are perfect, and the butterflies arrive safely in the Decorator Box ready to release all at one time from one container (no transferring needed).
Ordering online is safe and easy. Simply enter the date and day of your event below then scroll down to pick your envelope color and add short inscription or choose the mass release Decorator Box with your choice of ribbon only or ribbon and flower. Your butterflies will arrive the day before your Release Date entered (except Monday or Tuesday). If you do not make a choice for envelopes or add a mass release product, your butterflies will ship one per white release envelope. Display cages are also available on our home page. Butterfly Care Instructions will be emailed with your order confirmation.

BUTTERFLY CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Your butterflies will ship FedEx Priority Overnight to arrive the day before to your release date. In most cities delivers arrive before NOON. Your tracking number with your commitment time will be emailed when your butterflies ship. Please be present for your delivery. When your butterflies arrive it is important to change out the ice pack. To keep your butterflies safe and dormant until your release simply remove the top Styrofoam lid and take our ice pack that may be melted out and replace it with a frozen ice pack we ask you to provide. (We send a gel pack that is about 5 x 6 x 1 inch, anything similar is fine). Continue to use the shipping box as a cooler to keep a controlled temperature. The idea is to keep the butterflies naturally dormant until it is time for them to fly!
DO NOT STORE YOUR BUTTERFLIES IN A REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER
Store the Styrofoam insulated shipping box in a room temperature environment after replacing your ice pack. Refreeze our ice pack and change it out about every 12 hours. To Warm and Wake your butterflies the day of the release remove the product they are in from the make shift cooler, away from the ice so they have a chance to warm, wake and get ready for flight. Take them out for about a 1/2 HOUR to ONE HOUR before you plan on releasing them. For a successful release the butterflies need to be released during daylight hours and outdoors in temperatures above 65 degrees. They will not fly at night, in the rain, extreme wind or cold temperatures.
BUTTERFLY GUARANTEE: We cannot guarantee a successful release if you release the butterflies in inclement weather, after sunset or if your release day temperature is below 65 degrees. Due to any unforeseen circumstances, should your butterflies arrive expired, please contact us within 48 hours and return them for credit. We do ship extra butterflies to compensate for any uncommon or potential casualties. It is very rare to have expired butterflies as long as you follow the simple care instructions. Please visit our website QUESTIONS page for more information or call if we can be a service to you. Thank you very much for your butterfly order, enjoy your release.

Every single butterfly flew
Hi there. I wanted to email you with a compliment and to express our gratitude. We just released our butterflies about 20 minutes ago. It was perfect. Every single butterfly flew, there were no ?duds.? We are a non-profit school and therapy center for kiddos diagnosed with autism and related disabilities. This was such a dear and wonderful experience for our students. Thanks for providing such an incredible experience. Sincerely, Staci

a tremendous success
The butterflies that were shipped arrived safe and sound. The butterfly release was the perfect ending to our Infant Remembrance Walk. I don't know of a single butterfly that didn't take flight. Thanks again for working with me & making this year's walk a tremendous success.

We were definitely happy with the butterflies!
We also had a great experience with our butterflies for my mom's Celebration of Life". We were fascinated by how the Painted Ladies came out of the envelopes. They would get on your finger and you could bring them right up to your eye and watch them stretch their wings and legs! It was like watching a person wake up, it was beautiful! Loved how long they stayed around as well. Customer Service was excellent too! I would not hesitate to use your services again as well as refer others to your company. We were definitely happy with the butterflies!

thank you so much for meeting my needs
I want to thank you so much for meeting my needs on this last order which is a yearly memorial for my 18 year old daughter we lost in August, 2011. We have done business with you since 2012. I forgot that sometimes the monarch butterflies sell out and you may have a bit of wait time, which was the case when I placed my order. I was a bit upset as the monarchs are a large part of our release even though we usually have only 5 which symbolizes our whole family, and we get 60 to 100 painted ladies for all guests to release. I started checking other sites to see whether that would be the way to go, but I just didn't feel comfortable, and you still had the best pricing . I knew what you had done for me in the past. I sent you a text asking you to please do what you could to get monarchs for my order. I received a message back saying they were very close to hatching and would sent if they were out in time. The day of shipment I received a call stating that some were available and did I still want them. l just want you to know that the release went wonderfully. The monarchs were ready to go and flew off but a few came back. The painted ladies looked exceptionally bright. They were everywhere. I had some butterfly bushes and many cut wild flowers. They seemed to really enjoy them. You were extremely patient and kind with me on the phone which I appreciate as this is a tough time of year for me. And Chad, you remember me from year to year!! Thanks again.

well-couldn't have asked for it to go any smoother
Hi there- I just wanted to thank you for your amazing business! Since we were out of state for the wedding and had to have the btterflies shipped to the resort we were staying at I was a little bit nervous. The butterflies arrived right on time with very easy to follow directions. The release of the butterflies were a hit and a surprise for all the guests. They were all alive and well-couldn't have asked for it to go any smoother. Thank you again! Monya

The release was very special
Hello Chad. Our Hospice House 5k Fun Walk/Run was fantastic. The day was beautiful, sunny and 70 degrees in Buffalo, MN. We had over 100 participants and volunteers for the afternoon. The release was very special to many who were honoring or remembering some one special in their lives. We raised over Ten Thousand dollars yesterday towards our million dollar project to build the first hospice house in Wright County. Laura Buffalo, MN
