WHY YOU NEED TO PLAN AHEAD & ORDER CHRISTMAS LABELS EARLY

Many of our customers will already have ordered their Christmas labels – some early birds ordered way back in August! But for those of you that haven’t got around to thinking about Christmas labels yet – here’s why it’s so important to order early.

Christmas labels don’t need to arrive before Christmas.

They need to arrive before you have to despatch your labelled items so that they will arrive at their intended destination before Christmas.

This means that you need to allow time for:

  • Your order to be despatched.
  • Your order to be delivered.
  • A label template to be designed.
  • That label template to be printed onto your Christmas labels.
  • Your labelled items to be despatched to wherever they need to go.
  • Your labelled items to arrive at their destination BEFORE Christmas.

People often underestimate how long it takes for all of these steps to happen – and it’s no fun spending the weeks (and days) before Christmas in an absolute panic. So, order now and avoid a chaotic Christmas (at least in terms of your Christmas labels – we can’t promise that our labels will make the rest of your Christmas any less chaotic!).

DESPATCH & DELIVERY OF CHRISTMAS LABELS FOR 2018!

To guarantee pre-Christmas despatch and delivery and avoid chaos this Christmas, order your Christmas labels NOW!

We despatch small orders (fewer than 250 sheets) by Royal Mail’s first class service. This service will see more delays as Christmas gets closer. We recommend upgrading to our special delivery service, which guarantees delivery by 1pm on the next working day.

Small orders despatch same day, Monday to Friday, up to 4pm.

We despatch larger orders via next working day carrier. We have some special delivery options available (including pre-noon) – please contact our Customer Service Team to find out more and upgrade.

Please note: delivery to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, and the Channel Islands is via a 2 day carrier service.

Large orders despatch same day, Monday to Friday, up to 3pm – where stock is available.

We send 500 sheet boxes from our warehouse via next working day carrier; if your product has a minimum order quantity of 500 sheets it is NOT a stocked item and will therefore be made to order. This usually takes up to five working days – although standard paper labels often despatch sooner. At this time of year, our manufacturing lead-times increase (usually to 5-7 working days, although some items may move to 7+ working days), so we strongly recommend ordering non-stocked items or larger quantities as early as possible to avoid delay.

We recommend contacting our customer service team to confirm lead-times/stock availability if you need non-stocked items or large quantities.
