We make Halloween Props AFTER order is placed and do not keep inventory. Looking for BEST Solution

Hello, our company is currently considering migrating from Opencart to Shopify. We manufacture Halloween props and animatronics. Most of the items ordered on our website ship in 2-3 weeks because we make them after the order is placed and do not have inventory on all items. We do keep some inventory and in stock items. I am looking for the best solution to deal with this and let customers clearly know upfront expected manufacturing and date until it ships. On our current website we have a little red banner in the corner of each product photo that I can change the dates on. So it can say "Ships 2-3 weeks" or ship "1-2 days" etc. That also appears in the description under stock. Here is an example. https://distortionsunlimited.com/store/distortions-most-popular/nosferatu 

Is there a similar solution in Shopify? Do I need an app? Any recommendations to make it better? I need to be able to change it because we have some large animatronics that may take 6 weeks.
