The end of 2021 is near, and given that a] freight and postal services continue to experience significant challenges and delays, and b] we’re working through super high volumes, it's time to share our end-of-year order deadlines for custom products.
For the best chance of receiving your order before Christmas, here are the dates for your calendar [these are for our Australian customers only - unfortunately we aren’t able to guarantee pre-Christmas delivery internationally]:
Custom products [stamps, embossers and low-quantity paper tape]:
Order by: Sunday 14 November
Approve your artwork proof by: Wednesday 17 November
Order by: Sunday 5 December
These dates will give you the best possible chance of receiving your order pre-Christmas, based on current advice from our shipping provider Australia Post.
We’ve been super conservative with these deadlines - they’re based on our longest lead time [custom rubber stamps] and Parcel Post timeframes, so that our hard-working posties have plenty of time to deliver your goodies. We’ll be producing and shipping orders right up until Christmas, but we can’t guarantee pre-Christmas delivery if you miss the above dates.
The best advice we can give is to get your order in as early as you can, to avoid missing out.
Some other important notes:
📦 For our paper tape users: consider stocking up a little more than you usually would, to last you through the busy Christmas period and avoid running out.
⚙️ We’re currently working at capacity. Our custom products are all handmade by a small team here in Melbourne. We understand our timeframes may seem long, but they’re in place to ensure we can effectively manage the volume, and ensure our little team can give your order the care and attention it deserves. We’re not able to facilitate rush orders.
🏖️ Summer break: we’ll be taking a [very] much-needed break to enjoy the festive season. More on that here.
