Here's a quick guide to help you work out when your self adhesive labels will be despatched.
While some of our customers have time to plan ahead, many of the orders we receive are for customers who need labels in a hurry – whether they’ve been given a last minute job, have been let down by another supplier, have discovered that the stationery cupboard is bare, have simply forgotten to reorder labels, or have been given extremely tight deadlines to meet.
We try to make sure that all of our orders are despatched and delivered as swiftly and efficiently as possible – but we thought we’d put together some information to help our customers work out how quickly they can get their all-important labels.
- STOCKED ITEMS, 25-200 sheets
Items with a 25 sheet minimum order quantity are available for same day despatch (orders placed before 4:30pm, Mon-Fri).
For small quantities, these orders are despatched via Royal Mail’s first class service. We find that around 93% of these items are delivered on the next working day BUT it is not a guaranteed service and items may be delayed.
To guarantee next day delivery, you can upgrade to a guaranteed next working day delivery option – available online or by phone.
