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 10:30 AM Tuesday - Friday or NOON for Saturday deliveries. 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
a very precious memory to cherish
Hello, Just like to say a big thank you for your service! The butterflies arrived right on time as planned and they all survived! We had a beautiful and meaningful release with few families who lost their loved ones in the past months. The butterflies stayed around us for a while and offered us a very precious memory to cherish. The whole process was so smooth. People asked me all about the organization and I was glad to tell them about your company. Everybody is encouraged to repeat this next year and for sure I will. Thank you very much!! Lydie

great customer care
Hi Chad! I just wanted to thank you again for the great customer care you provided, and leave a review for others to read. I had wanted to order some butterflies for my mother's memorial service, but the weather predicted an 80% chance of rain for over a week and a half before the event. However, the morning before the service I checked the weather and there was almost no chance of rain for the next day. I sent an email to the Butterfly Release Company thinking there was no way to get a shipment of butterflies, but to my surprise Chad replied that as long as I ordered quickly I could get them before noon the next day (1 order of 36 painted lady butterflies). Without any issues I received them by 10am before the memorial that took place that afternoon. All of our guests had huge smiles and loved the experience with the release. The butterflies stayed on most peoples hands or shirts before flying off. It was a loving tribute that I am so happy to have been able to provide for my mom. Thanks so much for your help. Best regards to you, Deanne Austin, TX

Thank you for letting me ask endless questions :)
Chad & Jill, I can not thank you enough for how special my dad's one year memorial was with your butterflies on July 22nd. The box they came in with the blue ribbon & hydrangea was GORGEOUS. Thank you for letting me ask endless questions :) all 36 butterflies were alive & released for his memorial. Everyone loved them. It was a beautiful part of my dad's memorial & I'm sure he was looking down on all of us & loved them. Some pictures are attached. Regards, Lia

Thank You!!! for your amazing service
Chad; Wanted to Thank You!!! for your amazing service and kindness. My friend received the butterflies at New York, just as you promise. Although I couldn't attend the funeral service, I had the need to do something very special for this special family. The Release Box was perfect. I received many phone calls thanking me for this beautiful event, which was not seen before by them. This turn tears into smiles especially when the butterflies were flying around family members, then lingered on the flowers that were placed on the grave. I received a video of the event, which bought tears and happiness to me as well. I know that this special family will treasure this forever. Every time they see a butterfly, they will know that their mom is just watching over them forever. Thank you again for your wonderful service and I highly will recommend your services to anyone that would like to do something very special!!!!!! Nydia and Family Florida

our butterfly release was magical
Just wanted to tell you that our butterfly release was magical. Every butterfly was active. It was a beautiful sunny day in the butterfly garden my sister and I planted in memory of my husband. Thank you so much for a wonderful remembrance for him.

it was a wonderful experience.
Thanks Chad. Even though the butterflies weren?t packaged as I thought, it was a wonderful experience. The butterflies were awesome and your site?s description about how the painted lady butterfly would linger was spot on. We still enjoyed the experience and there were smiles on everyone?s faces. Even my insect phobic niece found herself letting the butterflies land on her arm without getting hysterical. It?s an experience that I plan on re-experiencing.
