If you need your labels to arrive in plenty of time before a big deadline, this is the blog post for you!
Our standard UK delivery options are as follows:
Small Orders (less than 250 sheets): same day despatch via Royal Mail’s first class service.
(orders placed by 4:30pm, Monday to Friday)
Large Orders (250+ sheets): same day despatch via next working day carrier.
(orders of stocked items placed by 3pm, Monday to Friday; made to order items are subject to up to five working days for despatch, although standard paper products will be available much sooner)
However, if you’re worried that this might not be quick enough, we also offer the following special delivery options:
Guaranteed Next Working Day Delivery (by 1pm) – available online and by phone
Guaranteed Next Working Day Delivery (by 9am) – available by phone only
Guaranteed Saturday Delivery (by 1pm) – available by phone only
Guaranteed AM Delivery – available by phone only
The level of AM delivery available will depend on the items/quantities you are ordering and the delivery address. Some items are available on pre-noon delivery only, while others may be available on earlier timeslot services. If you require delivery to so-called “Extended Postcodes”, Islands with UK Postcodes, Northern Ireland, or the Republic of Ireland, our carrier options are limited to 2-3 working day services.
Remember, if you absolutely positively have to have your labels in time for a specific date, then the very best thing to do is to make sure you have chosen a guaranteed delivery option. If you’re not sure what options are available, please get in touch so we can advise you of the best possible shipping services for the specific items you are ordering.
Standard UK delivery is included in the prices you see on our website; we do charge an additional shipping charge if you upgrade to a special delivery option but this is only the amount that Royal Mail or the carrier company charges us.
We would also remind customers (once again) that Royal Mail’s first class service is NOT a guaranteed next day delivery service. While 93% of these items are delivered the next (working) day, the rest can take a day or two extra (particularly if you live in remote areas or, indeed, London) and – in our experience – if you absolutely have to have your labels in time for a deadline, it is more than likely that (this time round) you will fall into that 7%. If you choose to “risk it”, please remember that we allow five working days for Royal Mail to deliver such items before declaring them to be lost.
