Allflex timeframes

  • Custom ear tags: Orders are ready to ship in up to 14 business days. ALL printed tags are considered custom, including ones that only include a custom number printed on them. USDA tags sold in singles, reusable 982 EID tags, EID Tags in bags of 1,000, and custom printed backs are also considered custom.
  • Inventory / in-stock items: Orders that only include inventory items (pre-numbered tags in bags up to management code of 100, USDA EID tags in bags up to a quantity of 250, tag applicators, marking pens, blank visual tags, 982 electronic ID tags, EID readers) ship within 2 business days.
  • Logo setup: If a logo is being set up for the first time, this logo setup process can take up to 10 business days. You'll receive a proof (picture of your logo on a sample tag) via email. Once you approve the logo, allow standard processing time for custom tags. If you already have a logo on file, your shipping timeframe is just the standard processing time.

If your order includes a combination of inventory items and custom ear tags, the order will ship after everything is ready to ship.

Your receipt is confirmation that we received your order. We do not know where your order is in the production queue at Allflex - we only receive order confirmation and then a tracking number when it ships. 

You will receive a tracking number the day your order ships.

In some rare cases, it may take more time than shown here for your order to ship. This can be due to Allflex production delays, weather delays, etc. Please note that these delays are beyond the control of and will also be experienced by all other Allflex resellers.

Please note that all Allflex custom tag orders placed anywhere in the United States, regardless of where the tags are purchased, will be printed at the Allflex production facility in Dallas / Ft Worth, Texas. Therefore, our time frames as well as timeframes of any Allflex distributor, are determined by the Allflex production facilities.
