It is finally the 1st of December, which means that it is officially completely okay to talk about Christmas!!!
While name labels might not seem like an all-important item that absolutely MUST be delivered in time for Christmas, we know that some of our customers will need to receive their order in time for the holidays. Some might want to be ready for the next school term (whether it’s labels for a few new bits and pieces or a full set of school uniform and equipment for a new start at a new school), others might be buying labels on behalf of relatives living abroad (to be handed over during a Christmas get together), or perhaps an order is for a friend or relative who is moving into a nursing or residential care home during the holidays and their belongings need to be safely labelled in time for the move.
It is a simple fact of life that more and more items are being delivered around Christmas time and delays are now an unfortunate inevitability, which is why we would encourage our customers to avoid the rush by placing their orders as early as possible – especially if it is important that they arrive in time for Christmas. We also advise customers with a deadline to consider upgrading to a guaranteed next day delivery service (shipping cost £5.75).
However, if you find that you keep forgetting to order, haven’t got round to it yet, or have suddenly realised that you need more name labels, here are the final, final posting dates you need to keep in mind:
