Last Posting Dates For Christmas 2014 (!)

Yes, yes, we know – not another company harping on about ordering stuff in time for Christmas!
However, we hope you’ll forgive us when we point out that:

  1. We just want to make sure all of our lovely customers receive their labels safely and swiftly despite the chaos of Christmas!
  2. Christmas Day is just six weeks away!

If you haven’t already, many of our customers will soon be looking to purchase labels for items that absolutely HAVE to arrive in time for Christmas – whether you need them for letters, cards, or gifts for family and friends or you’re a company and want to provide a seasonal Santa-like service and ensure that all of your customers’ orders are delivered in time for Christmas.

Labels often become a bit of an after-thought that gets left to the last minute, but it’s important to remember that whenever you order labels you need to allow time for the labels to arrive, to design your template, to print your labels, and to apply your labels – all of which soon adds up. If you then need to send your labelled items to family, friends, or customers, you also have to leave time for the items themselves to arrive safely before Christmas.

Therefore, at this time of the year we strongly advise customers to take advantage of one of our next working day shipping options, just to make absolutely sure that your labels arrive securely and with plenty of time to spare. If you need to send your labels on for printing or if you have despatch and delivery schedules of your own to keep to, it’s vital that you make sure you order your labels as early as possible.

So, here are those all important dates:

ROYAL MAIL’S INTERNATIONAL STANDARD/TRACKED SERVICES – Saturday 13th December
ROYAL MAIL’S FIRST CLASS/FIRST CLASS SIGNED FOR SERVICES – Saturday 20th December
ROYAL MAIL’S GUARANTEED NEXT DAY DELIVERY SERVICE – Tuesday 23rd December

Of course, we only process and despatch orders during the working week (Monday to Friday) so if you need to receive your labels in time for Christmas (i.e. – you DON’T need the labels for items that are to be despatched to someone else), your last ordering dates for labels from Label Planet are as follows:

ROYAL MAIL’S INTERNATIONAL STANDARD/TRACKED SERVICES – Friday 12th December
ROYAL MAIL’S FIRST CLASS/FIRST CLASS SIGNED FOR SERVICES – Friday 19th December
ROYAL MAIL’S GUARANTEED NEXT DAY DELIVERY SERVICE – Tuesday 23rd December

BUT REMEMBER: if you need labels for items that you are sending out that MUST arrive before Christmas, you need to order your labels well BEFORE these last posting dates – and adding a guaranteed delivery service to your order is a very, very good idea!!!
