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 AN 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. You can find more detailed instruction on our website and they will also arrive with your order. 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.

Dozen Butterflies- Son's Memorial
Highly recommend. This was a beautiful tribute to our son at his memorial. Delivery was easy, all the butterflies were alive & many lingered on the envelopes for a few seconds to a few minutes. Mine stayed with me for about 3 minutes, I like to believe it was my sons spirit.

added tremendously to the memorial
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

Everything was perfect
Dear Butterfly Release, I just wanted to thank you for the most positive experience. I ordered a box for my dad's 1 year memorial. Everything was perfect. Arrived on time, instructions were easy to follow, the box and butterflies were beautiful. I have already told friends and family about your company and our great experience. Thank you so very much and I look forward to ordering from you again. Best, Kristina Hurst

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

I ordered a dozen painted lady butterflies and a mass release box with a sunflower for a memorial. Everything was perfect and so beautiful! The release box with lavender ribbon and sunflower on top was so pretty, but the butterflies were amazing and so beautiful! The butterflies all flew out a few at a time and then hung around in the area for a while. The directions for care were simple, just changing the ice packs, and all butterflies were alive. Everything went perfectly and made a very memorable beautiful moment in honor our of loved one.

butterflies were by far perfect
We had a Celebration of Life for my sister on 5/4/19. I just want to say thank you so very much! The 12 individually wrapped butterflies were by far the perfect way to add to a beautiful outdoor luncheon. There wasn't a dry eye in the pavilion.

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.
