Yes, this is a blog post about ordering things in time for Christmas!
While name labels might not be at the top of – or even on – your list for Father Christmas, we do know that some customers want to make sure that their name labels arrive in time for Christmas (or at least the Christmas holidays). Some customers want to have a brand new set of name labels ready for the next school term, some might have a child or children who are switching to a new school, and others want to buy labels on behalf of friends or relatives who are visiting for the holidays (often from abroad).
In each case, these customers want to make sure their order arrives safely before or in time for the Christmas holidays, which means they need to contend with the chaos of Christmas post and the Royal Mail’s last posting dates.
At this time of the year more and more items are being posted and delays become ever more likely; therefore, we advise customers who want to receive their labels in plenty of time to place their orders as early as possible (and definitely well before the last posting dates) and, if they need them urgently, to consider placing their order by phone and requesting a guaranteed next working day delivery option.
So, here are the dates to remember:
Royal Mail’s International Standard & Signed For Services (non-UK orders)
Saturday 13th December: Orders must be placed by 3pm on Friday 12th December.
Royal Mail’s First Class Standard & Signed For Services (UK orders)
Saturday 20th December: Orders must be placed by 3pm on Friday 19th December.
Royal Mail’s Guaranteed Next Working Day Delivery Service (UK orders)
Tuesday 23rd December: Orders must be placed by 3pm on Tuesday 23rd December.
