CARE INSTRUCTIONS

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.

The butterflies were beautiful

I want to thank you for the butterflies you sent me on June 2, 2023. They arrived in time for me to travel for the Memorial Service on June 3rd. The butterflies were beautiful and a lasting memory for my sister's service.

Every butterfly you sent was alive and flew

I wanted to leave a review. I ordered butterflies in honor and memory of my daughter's 25th birthday which was September 18. Your service and responses to my questions was superb. I was going out of state and needed the butterflies two days early instead of one and I had absolutely no issues with releasing them a day later than recommended. Every single of the butterflies you sent was alive and flew beautifully, even the extras in case of casualties in shipping. It was a very beautiful and sacred time for my family. I have and will continue to recommend your company to others. I will also order again in the future. Thank you so much for making it possible for me to celebrate my girls' birthday in such a beautiful way. All of the butterflies had flown away except one. My little cousin (5 years old) was holding his and it was walking all over him. He kept saying, "Happy Birthday, Taylor". It lingered for minutes after all the others were long gone. He was able to handle it carefully as it stayed. He said the words, "Bye bye, Taylor". Immediately, the butterfly flew away. There wasn't a dry face around after watching this. Thank you so much for your service.

The butterflies were beautiful and all flew

I just wanted to thank you for making my sons memorial so heart warming and special, last weekend. The butterflies were beautiful and all of them flew away, some came back, some stayed around......? A lot of people asked me where I got them so of course I shared your information. You will probably get more orders. Again, thank you so much from a grieving mother's heart. Amy

Thank you for the beautiful butterflies!

Hello, Recently ordered butterflies for a 1 year memorial/rememberance for my Aunt's birthday. We lost her just before her birthday last year. Thank you for doing what you do. The butterfly release was a beautiful way to remember her & honor her. It really touched my Mom's heart (we surprised her with the butterflies). It was extra special because each of the butterflies she released hung out with her for a bit, as if it was her sister saying hi. It was touching and really special for our family. And the butterflies were much better for our environment to other alternatives we thought about but passed on of the lasting affect to the environment (release balloons or laterns...). Thank you for the beautiful butterflies! ~Destinee

Thank you for a successful release today

Hello Chad, I don?t know how much ?follow up? input you receive, but as a former business owner I must say it was always great to get a thumbs up for my service. And so in saying that, I?m sending your company a THUMBS UP! ? Although I had to delay my butterfly order for an entire month due to inclement weather, you and your team supported my requests and delivered upon request?even during your busy time of year. The live butterflies arrived exactly on the date and time promised, via FedEx. Thank you for a successful release today with my adult daughter of 39, her grand parents, and myself, Your painted ladies arrived alive and well and took flight the moment we opened their temporary living quarters, and landed on several close flowering plants near us! I will be pleased to refer others to your business if the opportunity arises. Sincerely, Diane

arrived on time and exactly as described

Hello: I have ordered butterflies from you twice last month for a memorial of my son's passing one year ago. One release was done in my home state of Maryland and the other was done in Colorado. Both releases were absolutely perfect! The butterflies arrived on time and exactly as described. There were no casualties. The instructions provided were clear and reasonable. All the butterflies in each shipment emerged from their envelopes and provided much entertainment for the children and enjoyment by the adults. Each release was most meaningful and added tremendously to the memorial gathering. My mother passed away recently and I plan to order soon another release for her interment gathering. Thank you so much, Darlene

the joy these butterflies brought my family

Hi chad, I just wanted to circle back and share with you the joy these butterflies brought my family. I have always believed that butterflies are messengers of God. We see one, whisper a loving note to a lost loved one and the butterfly carries that message. The butterfly release was held on the one year anniversary of the loss of our son. He was such a vibrant and beautiful young man, truly an example of Gods greatest gift. The butterflies were very healing and I?m so grateful for you and what you do. Warm regards, Jennifer

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.

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

they all took flight

We ordered our butterflies for a Tuesday release. I was very worried that with shipping, they wouldn't arrive in time. I contacted the office, and the person I spoke to was very helpful and assuaged my fears. The butterflies arrived promptly on the morning of our release. We followed the instructions, and they all took flight. It was lovely. This was an excellent experience on all fronts. Thank you.

We told EVERYONE about your company

Dear Butterfly Release Company, I wanted to take a moment and sincerely thank you for your help in making our friend's memorial a perfect event. Each and every butterfly flew and it was a gorgeous tribute after our unexpected loss. We told EVERYONE about your company, where you are located and the ease of the online ordering process. We truly appreciate your attentive and patient customer service. Thank you for walking us through everything on the phone and being so kind. We will not only continue to recommend you to our friends and family, but WE will order more butterflies next year to honor our friend, Penny. We can't go wrong with you guys helping us, that is for sure. These creatures received awesome care by your team and we were proud to set them loose in Port Orange, FL this past Saturday. Have a blessed day and thank you, again & again, for the important work you do for the reputation of small businesses, families and our ecosystem. Much appreciated: Ron Arthur (and the family & friends of Penny S.)
