Label Planet: Despatch & Delivery Update – Last Posting Dates For 2017

https://www.labelplanet.co.uk/







There are only a few weeks left before Christmas, which means that those all-important despatch and delivery deadlines are creeping closer and closer.

If you’re planning to buy self-adhesive labels in December, our advice – as ever – is to order AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (if not RIGHT NOW!) and to put small orders (under 250 sheets) on our guaranteed next day delivery service.

While we do everything we can to get orders despatched as quickly as possible, our despatch AND delivery estimates are increasing:
  • More orders are being placed (usually for larger quantities), which means there are more sticky labels in the queue for manufacturing – increasing DESPATCH estimates for made to order items and bulk boxes (up to 5-7 working days).
  • More items are being delivered; we always despatch orders as quickly as possible but have no control over delays within the Royal Mail’s network or our carrier’s network - possibly increasing DELIVERY estimates for all orders.
Generally speaking, GUARANTEED delivery services tend to maintain expected levels of service – it is only the Royal Mail’s first class service (used for small orders) that experiences delays, which is why we strongly recommend upgrading to a guaranteed delivery service.

We will be despatching self adhesive labels up to (and including) Friday 22nd December; our last posting dates depend on the QUANTITY of printer labels you wish to buy, the DELIVERY SERVICE you select, and your DELIVERY ADDRESS.

* Large orders of STOCKED items ONLY; made to order items have a 5-7 working day lead-time, which means you will need to order as early as possible (i.e. in the first/second week of December).

If you need to order ANY label size or label material in bulk boxes any later than the second week of December, we strongly recommend contacting our Customer Service Team first so we can confirm if stock is available for despatch & delivery before Christmas.

If you need any help and advice placing an order for Christmas labels, or if you have ANY questions or queries about the despatch & delivery of an order, remember that our Customer Service Team is on hand Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm!

Whether you need address labels for Christmas cards, product labels for seasonal stock, or sticky labels for a Christmas project – NOW is the time to order your self adhesive labels from Label Planet.
