Here are our last posting dates for UK & Overseas orders!
Don’t let the last posting dates creep up on you! There is nothing worse than ordering a special parcel only to find that you’ve missed the ‘last day’ to ensure it arrives in time for Christmas by a day or two!
As it’s such a busy time of year we really do recommend that people allow plenty of time for their orders to arrive, especially if you want to send it onto a family member or loved one. Royal Mail is notoriously busy and it’s better to be safe than sorry!
We work hard to dispatch all our orders by the next working day – however even our best efforts can be scuppered by a postal strike or slow mail service!
UK Orders – Our recommendations
For UK orders, the last day day we recommend orders to post Standard (second) class is Tuesday 17 December. All orders over £40 that qualify for free shipping are posted Standard Class, so please ensure you’ve allowed plenty of time!
The last day we recommend orders to post First Class is Thursday 19th of December.
Finally, if you would like to use the Special Delivery Service (guaranteed by 1pm, not on Saturdays), we recommend you place your order by 12pm on Monday 23 December.
We will do our best to continue to dispatch our orders as speedily as we can, but even the best laid plans can be waylaid by slow postage! So please do keep that in mind. Why not take a look at our Christmas Shop for some gift giving inspiration?
International Orders – Our recommendations
International mail is incredibly busy at Christmas time so please do consider these dates as the absolute, very last, made it by the skin of your teeth dates for final orders. These dates incorporate our dispatch time of one business day and does not include our Fine Art Prints which require longer as they are printed on demand.
Please note that even when Royal Mail does it’s job and gets mail to the country in question in good time there is also the possibility of a search by customs to factor it, and local in-country delivery.
