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.

The cost is $35.00 for shipping in the state of Florida, $45.00 for states East of the Rockies and $50.00 West of the Rockies (AZ, CA, ID, MT, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY) Saturday delivery for a Sunday release is an additional $15.00 for states.

Some areas may have a later delivery time, your commitment time and tracking number will be emailed when shipped. Tuesday release days will be shipped Monday for delivery on Tuesday. Sunday deliveries for Monday releases are not available.
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.
A Butterfly Release Company
Everything was so efficient and easy and beautiful
I just wanted to thank you for my recent experience with your company. Everything was so efficient and easy and beautiful from the person I spoke to on the phone with questions, from the way you keep the person up to date right down to the day and time we would receive the butterflies and how to care for them. It was a positively beautiful moment to share with my family to honor my husband who passed and other who we missed and loved ? we did it on Easter with family as young as 3 all the way up to 70 and it brought a smile and a tear to everyone involved. I just didn?t want to let another day go by without sharing that with you. Sincerely, Sherill

We had a 100% fly away.
It was a grand event. With grief on our hearts for Joann's celebration of life service, the release of the butterflies to carry our wishes to the heavens was the perfect way to end our day. We had a 100% fly away. We were predicted storms but at 1130 the sun was shining brightly. Some painted ladies stayed to visit for a short time and some went to the first flower they found. I had such nervousness about this being my first time but it could not have been more perfect. Thank you ! It was like our grief was lifted on the wings and softened a bit. It was a grand event.

Everyone was amazed and enjoyed the release.
I ordered 2 dozen painted ladies for my husband?s Heaven-versary 4/24/22. I?m so impressed with the entire process. From great customer service to prompt delivery. The poem enclosed in order was beautiful, I displayed on table. I was a little anxious & hoped all butterflies were alive and well upon release. I?m happy to report all butterflies took flight. Everyone was amazed and enjoyed the release. I would highly recommend The Butterfly Release Company. Thank you so very much! Margaret

the butterfly release was a big success!
Hello again, Murphy Just wanted to let you know the butterfly release we had on Friday was a big success! All of them were living and most flew away immediately. Some needed a little coaxing but that added to the enjoyment. It was a nice way to say farewell to our loved one. Thank you for all you did to make it happen. Sincerely Diane

We will spread the word and would order again
Thank you so very much for staying in contact with us about our butterfly shipment. We had ordered the butterflies for a family funeral. The butterflies were all very much alive and beautiful. They would not leave the children. We placed them on the flowers and they eventually left. It was a very beautiful send off for the family. You were all very kind to provide such great service in a time that was so chaotic and overwhelming. We will definitely spread the word and would order again.

I have never experienced such exceptional customer
Hey Chad - My mother and I ordered butterflies for a small memorial for the one year anniversary of my sister's passing. I was going crazy figuring out what we could do in order to honor her memory. My parents, siblings, and I have always said that a butterfly is our sign of my sister. I saw your company and knew it was perfect. The day before the memorial we were worried as FedEx came to both of our houses, but no butterflies. I waited until about 3pm and gave your company a call. Without question, the young lady called FedEx and was immediately on top of it. Apparently the butterflies were shipped through TN in order to make it to VA. With the crazy snow storms and other weather in TN, all FedEx packages were backed up. We completely understood this and would have been bummed if we didn't get to do the release. That was not an option for your team. I really wish I remembered her name because she went above and beyond. She had FedEx walk into the distribution center, find both boxes, put them on a plane, and have them overnighted to VA. The next morning (7am), the FedEx distribution center where we live, called and told us we could pick them up. This all happened in a span of 16 hours. Your employee (and FedEx) worked absolute wonders. Again, she went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined in order to make sure we had our butterflies. I have never experienced such exceptional customer service. The release was so heartwarming as each and every butterfly flew away. I have attached the link my best friend put together of the release. Hope you enjoy it! I apologize for being so long winded, I just can't express how thankful I am for you and your employees. You all helped us to take the worst day of our lives and give it a new meaning with a new memory. For that, we are forever grateful. Thank you, Collan and Family (Jimmy, Donna, Chris, Carson, and Chad)

The instructions were easy to follow
I received butterflies from your company for an Aug 1 release in memory of my son who would've been 40 on that day. I can't express enough how happy I am with the quality of the butterflies and how well they were packed and shipped. The instructions were easy to follow. All butterflies were alive and they were beautiful! It was a nice memorial celebration and the butterflies made it extra special. I will be a return customer. Sincerely Gayle

We a butterfly release for my mom's memorial this weekend. When my sister suggested trying to find a way to do a butterfly release, I had to admit I was real skeptical.

truly a blessing and unforgettable memory
I wanted to take this time to thank you for your unique service. We ordered butterflies for my father"s funeral. This was a very special touch and we rcvd a number of compliments as many of our guests had never seen this before. The butterflies were an after thought, mainly because I thought we didn't have enough time to order and that it would be affordable. You were not only the most affordable, but could accommodate my need request. I ordered 2 dozen Painted Ladies and the handling instructions were very easy all the butterflies survived! While they are smaller than Monarchs, the sheer number made an amazing display as they carried my father across the cemetery. In fact, one butterfly stayed on my shoulder the entire burial service. It was truly a blessing and unforgettable memory. Thank you! Yvonne, Ca

it was quite moving!!
I just wanted to thank you. The butterflies arrived on time on Saturday and since it was a very HOT day, we were worried about them. When it came time to release them, all went well and it was quite moving!! Thank goodness, we released them when we did because soon after, the heavens opened up and we had a tremendous downpour. We are very happy that we added the butterflies to the service. Now when we see butterflies, we think of our mother! Sincerely, Leslie

butterflies seemingly dance in the air
I ordered butterflies from you, for my mothers celebration of life ceremony last month. I opted for the mass release package with a pretty box, adorned with bow and flower of my choosing. I was impressed with the ease of care and preparation. Plus, it looked beautiful sitting on the memorial table. Many attendees watched and listened in amazement, as the butterflies 'came to life' during the ceremony. When the time came to release the butterflies, we moved from our covered gazebo, to the open garden of the venue, (a local arboretum & flower garden) and as our Pastor read the poem, "Final Flight" the grandchildren pulled the ribbon on the box, slowly releasing over 2 dozen breathtaking butterflies. All of which took to the sky in a whirlwind above us, only to return and begin landing on several of our guests, to their (and our) utter delight. Everyone was left in awe as we watched the butterflies seemingly dance in the air as they finally departed. It was one of the most stunningly beautiful scenes I, as well as my family, have ever witnessed. It brought a sense of peace to a difficult time, and allowed us to give our mother a very graceful farewell. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Monique

Pros: Great Communication and Product Quality
PERFECTION!!!!! Last minute order to honor the mother of my son's girlfriend. She loved butterflies, and the personal inscription touched everyone's heart. Murphy personally called with a delivery ETA, and then called to confirm receipt. The easy-to-follow instructions ensured a sucessful release. The daughter's butterfly stood on the envelope for a minute and then took flight. The butterflies stayed around the crowd for a few minutes leaving the guest in awe. THANK YOU for helping us make this a true Celebration of Life!!!!

Thank You for your Butterflies
I would like to say Thank You for your Butterflies. All arrived in great condition and were delivered in the AM. We released them today at my grand babies funeral . The weather was less than perfect, The wind had picked up as a storm was moving in. The Butterflies bolted from the envelopes like they were late for a date with the angels, But that's ok there was one little painted lady that stuck around a little longer than the others to visit with the youngest grandchild. I know they are animals of nature and sensed the bad weather nearing. So I am hoping to see them again after the rain stops and the weather clears up. If not I hope they will flutter by to make someone else's day a little brighter. Thank you again! and look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Hi Chad, I want to thank you so very much for your help on July 14th as I waited for my butterflies. We released the butterflies on the 15th in honor of my father, and everything was beautiful!!! My family was so surprised, and the release was incredibly touching. Thank you for sending the extras as well. All of the butterflies survived the trip, and we used the extras for the unexpected family members who joined us that evening. Again, thank you for being such a caring company. CHERYL
