CHINESE NEW YEAR 2023
DEADLINES & TIMELINES
Our manufacturers will be celebrating Chinese New Year from January 14, 2023, until January 28, 2023. The holiday marks the beginning of a new year.
Historically, the 2-week holiday can lead to a 2-month delay in production and shipping.
Jupiter works closely with our factory and our partners to best strategize their orders throughout this period.
Contact an Account Executive to plan accordingly!
Our manufacturers will shut down between January 14-28, 2023, to observe Chinese New Year. The holiday not only marks the beginning of a new year—this period also represents a complete shutdown of China’s manufacturing infrastructure, impacting about 2 months of production and shipping.

Deadlines for New Custom Orders & Approved Design Reorders
While we work closely with our factory to strategize orders, we cannot guarantee orders will ship before the Chinese New Year. However, adhering to the deadlines below will significantly increase the potential that your order will ship before the Chinese New Year 2023 shutdown.
The earlier your order is placed, the better. All deadlines are the highest likelihood estimation and are subject to change.
Place a New Order or Reorder
We highly recommend beginning orders in October. Between decision-making, samples, approvals, and the holiday season in the U.S., a new custom order PO can take up to 4 weeks to be finalized. Custom orders must meet Minimum Order Quantities and follow Artwork Requirements.
• PO cannot be placed until the deposit is received and the Production Approval Form is signed.
• Once the PO is placed, the order is on the line for production for 8-12 weeks on average.
Submit Design to Receive Samples before CNY
October 14, 2022
Friday, October 14, 2022, is the last day when you can submit new designs to be sampled in time for pre-CNY order placement. Doing it so in a timely manner will ensure you have enough time to make any design changes and adjustment based on the first set of samples to be received and reviewed by your team.
Place PO for Pre-Chinese New Year Shipping
Wednesday, November 30, 2022
To increase the probability of your order shipping before Chinese New Year, place a PO with a deposit by Tuesday, November 30.

Place PO for the Earliest Post-Chinese New Year Shipping
Wednesday, December 14, 2022

Custom Order Process & Timeline
Estimates are applicable to most custom orders. Special customization requests may take a longer time.
Once the order quote is finalized, you will receive an art template for your products. Once the template is submitted, our Production team will approve the artwork or give recommendations.
• Artwork must be made up of 2 solid colors using the Pantone Solid Coated color library.
• Gradients and tints cannot be reliably reproduced.
• Advanced printing methods are available at an additional cost to reproduce photographs or gradients.
Once artwork is approved, you will receive a render within 3 business days or less. The render will include a preview of your product.
Once renders are approved, we will request a made-to-order physical sample from our factory. You will receive a digital photo of this sample within 10 business days.
The physical sample will arrive at our headquarters approximately 7 business days after we receive digital samples from the factory. If requested, we will ship a sample to you in 2-3 business days.
Once you approve the samples, you will sign a Production Approval Form. Once the form is signed, a PO will be placed and the order will be released to our manufacturer for production.
Once the PAF form is signed and the PO is placed, custom orders are on the line for production for 8-12 weeks depending on manufacturing capacity.
Order ships from China to our U.S. fulfillment center and arrives within 7 business days or less. Order then ships from our fulfillment center to your business and arrives within 6 business days or less.
About Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China. In 2023, the Chinese New Year begins on January 14 and marks the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit.
Within mainland China, businesses close and workers go home for several weeks. A comparable holiday is Christmas in the U.S., but longer and with more extensive travel. The holiday shutdown can affect manufacturing production for as long as two months.
