As we approach the hectic holiday period, we thought it made sense to lay out all of our shipping deadlines ahead of time so our customers, both here and abroad, can determine when they need to get their deliveries in the mail to receive them before the holidays. So here goes:
December 10th – Last Day For Priority Mail International Shipments Outside the US for Christmas Delivery
December 12th – Last Day for Express Mail International Shipments Outside The US for Christmas Delivery
December 15th – Last Day for First Class Mail Shipments Within the US for Christmas Delivery
December 17th – Last Day for Priority Mail Shipments Within the US for Christmas Delivery
December 21st – Last Day for Express Mail Shipments Within the US for Christmas Delivery
Hanukkah comes later this year on December 24th, which can be challenging for the postal system since it means more packages are being shipped concurrently with Christmas deliveries. Needless to say, the sooner you get your orders into the system the better, particularly if weather- or work-related issues and/or delays pop up across the nation. Keep in mind that once we hand off the parcels to the USPS, we have no control over their delivery, routing or location, so we strongly recommend not waiting until the bitter end to place or inquire about your orders. The aforementioned deadlines can also be viewed on our Calendar page.
