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.
Shipping is addition to the package price. 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. Shipping cost will be added at check out. Most packages arrive before NOON the day before your Release Date. 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
Thank you for the excellent service
Thank you for the excellent service and care instructions; everything was beautiful. The weather was perfect and the butterflies were vibrant and ready to fly. Your company did an outstanding job following the shipment tracking and communicating with me and the funeral home. My mother-in-law was a butterfly enthusiast, she had over 60 butterfly lapel pins that we laid out at the visitation and encouraged her friends to take a pin in memory of her, Jean Coker. This was the first butterfly release for this long well-established funeral home and everyone enjoyed it. Kindest regards, Tom & Julie

nothing short of amazing
I wanted to take the time to do a review about this company. I had ordered 36 butterflies to release for my deceased son's birthday in Florida, on my vacation. I have never worked with a company that is so "in tuned" to your needs. 5 days prior to leaving to go to Florida (where they butterflies would be shipped) I got covid. It was an "on again, off again" situation as to whether I would even go to Florida. The personal attention I received during my decision of whether to go, or not to go, (and whether to have the butterflies shipped or not) was nothing short of amazing. I couldn't have asked for any better attention. They were physically calling me checking on my condition, and whether I needed to cancel or postpone the shipment. Where else would you get this personalized treatment? Very attentive!! It turned out that I got to go, and the shipment was delivered, and it was absolutely beautiful. I would (and have!) recommended this experience to anyone!! Amy

We had 100% survival, thank you
I wanted to thank you for our wonderful experience with Butterfly Release Company. During these COVID times we'd planned the scattering of my parents ashes with just our family on the property they loved, culminating with the Butterfly Release. The Butterflies came on time and the instructions were clear. We had 100% survival. Concluding with the butterfly release after a sad but precious time of remembrance, having lost both of my parents within 11 months, lifted all of our spirits as we watched the butterflies fly up as my parents had done before them.

Amazing they made it from Florida to California
Murphy, Thank you for the instructions to help the butterflies to do so well. We were very happy all the butterflies lived and we even had a couple revisit us the next morning. So thankful for the care on your end. We purchased pesticide free plants from nursery and had fresh fruit and yellow Gatorade for them to get nourishment in backyard before having to fend for themselves. Thank you for making a difference during these times where families can?t have regular memorial services. Amazing they made it from Florida to California and were successful! Thanks for helping with a business like yours. Pam

the most incredible butterfly release event
Dear Owner I just want to say how grateful I am to your company for providing the most incredible butterfly release event for my mother's memorial. We had 30 close family and friends all meet at Lakeside Amusement Park in the Denver, Colorado area. She always took us there when we were kids. I had purchased 60 butterflies. It was a beautiful June weekend. We each had 2 envelopes to open, the kids and adults had so much fun and we were able to take wonderful photos which we shared on Facebook. The perfect memorial -- my mother would have loved it. I think she was actually there in spirit. There was a butterfly that kept returning to us as we sat and talked about the great time we had doing the release. I have told so many people about your company and saved several of the envelopes to hand out since your business info is on the back. I sincerely want to say thank you and, I am sure I will be calling you again. Cindy

I cannot express how amazing our event
Hello Murphy! I cannot express how amazing our event Sunday was. We are so grateful you made this a possibility. I can't even express how much this meant to Addie's family and friends.

Thank you for making it special.
I wanted to let you know the butterflies arrived when expected. We followed the instructions to take care of them. Everything went perfectly. The butterflies were ready when it came time to launch them and everyone said 'Ahh' when they flew out. It was amazing. Everyone thought it was a nice touch to my Mother's life celebration. She was set free... Thank you for making it special.

the butterflies we ordered from you right on time
Chad, Debra and I just wanted you to know that we received the butterflies we ordered from you right on time and in great condition. I am not aware of any or our guests having a butterfly that didn't fly away in great shape when they opened their envelope. Everyone loved the release. We received more comments and compliments on that part of our wedding than on the total of everything else. We unequivocally recommend you and your company. Thank you for making our wedding so special. Jack and Debra, Las Vegas, NV
