It is finally December, which means that the Christmas Countdown is officially ON!
It also means that if you’ve been thinking about ordering some Christmas name labels to get yourself organised over the holidays, then NOW is the time to buy!
Christmas is a great time of year to take stock of how much stuff has made it to school and back again safely (and how much hasn’t) and to see what else needs labelling – just in case.
Maybe you need school uniform labels for someone who’s grown a bit (or a lot) over the last few months, name tags for equipment that’s needed for a new class or project starting in January, or perhaps you just need a few extra stick on name labels to help keep a few Christmas presents safe when they inevitably get taken into school for an (un)official show and tell.
If you’ve got a child (or any other family members) with a bit of a reputation for losing things, a pack of Stikins ® name labels might just be the perfect little extra something for their stocking this year.
It’s also a great time to order school name labels on behalf of family and friends – especially those living abroad who will be visiting (or visited) over the holidays.
If you want to order a pack (or two or three or four – or more!) of sticky name labels for delivery BEFORE Christmas – don’t worry! – there’s still plenty of time to make sure that your stick on labels arrive before the big day.
SWIFT & SPEEDY DESPATCH
OF SEASONAL SCHOOL NAME LABELS
We print, pack, and post our name labels every day, Monday to Friday, up to 3pm – which means that ALL orders received before 3pm are sent out SAME day, while orders received after 3pm (or over the weekend) are sent out on the NEXT working day.
We send all of our orders via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard (free of charge) and you can also upgrade to a next day delivery service (shipping: £5.75) or a Saturday delivery service (shipping: £8.75) to make sure that your name stickers arrive safe and sound as soon as possible.
To upgrade to our special delivery options, please give us a call on 01270 668076; this allows us to ensure that your order will DEFINITELY be despatched same day for next day delivery.
DELIVERY DEADLINES TO AVOID
A CHRISTMAS DISAPPOINTMENT
If you do want to order name labels for clothes and other items – and you need them to arrive BEFORE Christmas – then we strongly recommend upgrading to our next day delivery service.
We also recommend ordering as soon as possible to avoid disappointment – especially if you are relying on our standard delivery service; Royal Mail do NOT guarantee that first class items will be delivered next day and this service can experience delays as we get closer to Christmas.
If you find that ordering name labels has slipped your mind, these are the very last posting dates for orders of Stikins ® name labels:
Delivery to Europe: last posting dates vary by country with some being as early as the 6th December and others being as late as 13th-15th December; you can get in touch with us to find out the last posting date for your intended shipping destination BUT we strongly recommend ordering THIS WEEK to give your name labels plenty of time to arrive.
Delivery to the Republic Of Ireland: we despatch orders via Royal Mail’s International Standard service, which means the last posting date is Friday 15th December.
This service may be delayed so we recommend ordering as early as possible for pre-Christmas delivery.
Standard Delivery to the UK: Royal Mail’s First Class service has a last posting date of Wednesday 20th December.
This service may be delayed so we recommend ordering as early as possible for pre-Christmas delivery OR upgrading to a special delivery service.
Special Delivery to the UK: special delivery is via Royal Mail’s Special Delivery Guaranteed service, which has a last posting date of Thursday 21st December.
If you find yourself leaving things to the VERY last minute this year, we can despatch name labels on Friday 22nd December for delivery before Christmas, providing you upgrade to the Royal Mail’s Saturday Delivery Guaranteed service.
Remember, if you want to upgrade to one of our special delivery options at ANY time during December, you will need to call our Customer Service Team to do so – this allows us to make sure that your sticky name labels are made and despatched on the same day you order.
