Yes, it's yet another reminder this year that Christmas time is almost here!
While you might be more concerned about your plans for Bonfire Night (Have you got enough food and drink? What will you wear? Where did you put your woolliest hat/gloves/scarf/wellington boots? Are the pets going to be okay? Where did you put the fireworks/matches/sparklers/emergency bucket of water or – if you’re particularly well organised/adventurous – fire extinguisher?), we hope you’ve got a spare minute or two to think about Christmas(!).
The dark nights have drawn in, Halloween has come and gone, and thoughts are inevitably turning to Christmas – which means that the rush to get everything done on time is also underway.
As the days go by, despatch and delivery estimates will only get longer and longer, which is why we’d like to encourage our customers to get their labels bought nice and early. Many people consider labelling their items to be the last job to do (apart from actually delivering them to where they need to go, of course!), which means that many will leave it to the last moment to order the labels they need – only to find that it’s going to take longer than they thought for the labels to be despatched and delivered (and that’s before you take into account the time you need to get your labels designed, printed, and applied – not to mention any time you need to then send your items on to a store, warehouse, customer, or even the recipient of an extra special gift).
Whether you’re an individual who’s got some creative Christmas projects in mind or a business or organisation with a whole heap of Christmas stock and promotional materials to get sorted, it’s always best to get things done early at this time of the year.
So, if you know that you’re going to need labels in plenty of time for Christmas (especially if you need a lot of labels, made to order items, or simply need to make sure your items have time to get to where they need to go), ordering now will go a long way to making sure that this Christmas is a peaceful one.
If you’re at all concerned about how long it could take for the items you require to be despatched/delivered, please get in touch with us for the most up to date estimates and to discuss the shipping options available.
[And, of course, we hope that – once you’ve got your Christmas label planning sorted or, at the very least, underway – you have a wonderfully spectacular Bonfire Night with plenty of fireworks, food, and fabulous bonfires aflame!]
