Placing An Order – Swell Forever

If you have issues accessing our order forms on each product page, please refresh the page and wait a few minutes. Or, try a new browser. 

Thank you for your interest in Swell Forever! A few things to note before you place an order:

1. Only some of our Forever Blankets® can be monogrammed. {All alpaca throws, baby blankets (except knit), Lindsay, Susan, Wesley, Olivia, Annie, Irene and Kevin designs}

2. We have an order form on each product page. You can order multiple items before checking out but will have to add each unique item to the cart if the style, color, monogram and message are not all identical. Refresh the page if you don't see the form. You can also try a new browser.

3. Every purchase includes a personalized message tag. Place all your text for the tag in the Message Text box of our order form. We will design it to fit the space beautifully.  If the field is left blank or you type in "standard", we automatically add the message "May love keep you warm."

4. If you want to submit handwriting or writing from a card, we will email you 24-48 hours after the order is placed with instructions. Do not select "Submit Handwriting Sample" if you want our cursive text on your tag. Do select it if you want to submit a sample of your own handwriting or someone else's. It is a $5 up charge.

5. Here is a link to samples of our personalized message tags. We only use two fonts. Standard and cursive. If you want a certain layout or words emphasized a special way, please note these instructions in our Special Design Notes box. No notes are required. Emailing a special layout to ensure your vision is matched is welcome. Note your order number and contact

6. We do not offer proofs unless an order is five blankets or more. Why? We are a tiny little biz and all those fancy preview tools do not work with our software or products. Plus we custom design each message verses using an automated program. AND, we also try to beat most Etsy custom product turnarounds and doing so would tack on several more weeks to get your order to you. We will send you a replacement tag for free if you notice a major typo (customer's mistake) after the order ships but please review carefully!

7. Want to see sample monograms? Please go here. Due to copyright issues, we cannot display every letter of every font or provide previews for your unique combination. See above about proofs. However, we have tried to show a good sampling of the fonts. If we notice a very wonky letter in a font we will notify you before stitching. Js and Is are notoriously tough font letters. If fonts are difficult or create issues on our products, we stop using them. Feel free to inquire about a difficult letter combination.

8. Please please please review monogram spelling. We try to catch customer mistakes as a courtesy if possible to save time and money on both ends, but we have no way of knowing if Holden is spelled with an "e" or an "o". :) If ordering an initial monogram, always put the last initial in the middle or write out the full name. Couple's last names also go in the middle. Unless you request otherwise in an email, we make middle initials larger. Baby blanket initial monograms always go on the diagonal in the corner.

9. Please see information about estimated turnaround times below. We NEVER guarantee an arrival date because we cannot control the postal service. We do our best best best to get an order to the postman in order to meet an agreed upon delivery date. Information about placing a rush order can be found here. We now offer the ability to request a rush when placing your order.

10. We can offer some discounts on bulk shipping and bulk blanket orders but it is based on your location, blanket option, turnaround, etc. Rarely can we offer discounts on the Wesley, Susan and Lindsay collections but we welcome your inquiries.

-----We NEVER include prices in our packages!----


Please keep in mind that every aspect of our blankets is custom from the tags to the monograms and for handmade baby blankets, the fabric and satin selections. We are also a small team. The time frames below are an ESTIMATE only and apply for products for which we have the item or materials in stock at the time of order. Only applies to U.S. shipments.

For international orders, please inquire via email unless shipping to Canada. Please note: we no longer collect tax for Canadian shipments so be prepared to pay duty upon receipt.

We also provide "Gift on its Way" printable cards we can send via email upon request if you are unsure the gift will make the special event in time. Contact
