I only offer a few Plant Profiles in my inventory at a time. This is because each piece is an original work of art that can take around 7-14 days to complete (the painting process). Scanning & archive certified printing take 2-3 days to complete. **Please allow 5-7 business days for delivery in the US, once shipped.
