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! 


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.

Hi Chad! I wanted to let you know that the release of the butterflies was perfect. They all survived and everyone absolutely loved opening the envelopes to find a beautiful butterfly. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to my dad. Thank you again for everything Sherrie

What a beautiful experience

Dear Murphy and team, What a beautiful experience, I can?t thank you enough for your professionalism, personalized service and accuracy in the instructions with the butterflies. It was an emotional day but releasing the butterflies during our casual ceremony helped us have some closure after such loss. I?ll keep you in mind for future needs, I was very impressed. Sincerely, Monica

Our butterfly release was wonderful!

I Just wanted to let you know that our butterfly release at my Mom's remembrance service this past Saturday was wonderful! We stood around a courtyard outside the church and everyone unfolded their envelopes together. Some butterflies took flight as soon as they were opened, others visited awhile before flying. Since my mom enjoyed butterflies, it was the perfect end of the service. The ordering, delivery, directions and release were easy, clear and made our service special. Thank you, Sincerely Suzan

Thank you for providing such a great service

Just wanted to let you know the Butterfly Release, for my son's 1-year Memorial celebration at the cemetery went beautifully. The release box arrived exactly on time. We followed your instructions and all butterflies survived. It was just beautiful watching all of them fly out of the box. Our 9-year-old Granddaughter, who loves Butterflies, did the release. It was a very fitting memorial for our son. Thank you for providing such a great service, it truly was impressive to all those in attendance. We termed the release as " Butterfly Kisses to Heaven" our Granddaughter wore a shirt with that saying on it. Thank you again.

All the butterflies were BEAUTIFUL

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that our butterfly release in memory of our mother was fantastic. Your instructions were clear and easy to follow. We could hear the movement in the little envelopes just before our release. All the butterflies were BEAUTIFUL and all of them flew out without any problem. Thank you so much! I can send photos or video if you like. Deb
