ORDERING DEADLINES FOR GUARANTEED DELIVERY BEFORE XMAS 2020
TUE 24 NOV - Orders shipping outside of UK
THU 10 DEC - Orders shipping within UK only
Due to the ongoing disruption caused by COVID-19 amid the anticipated seasonal rush, the dates above are a little earlier than normal to allow for possible delays in the whole production and delivery supply chain.
UPDATE 17 DEC 2020:
Orders placed from today will not arrive before Xmas and typical lead times for production and delivery will be affected by our suppliers' Xmas Holiday closures (24-28 Dec and 1 Jan).
Orders placed after the deadlines above and before today may still arrive before Xmas but cannot be guaranteed.
Please see our guide to typical lead times below.
We are open for business and still shipping to most worldwide destinations. Please note however, where severe delays continue to compromise the service we can offer to customers, deliveries to the following countries are temporarily suspended:
- South Africa
Our fulfilment partners continue to operate strictly in accordance with the Government guidelines and are still aiming to ship orders within the lead times indicated below. However, please allow some tolerance due to ongoing disruption and possible delays with your local courier or mail service.
We are monitoring the situation daily and will of course refund any orders that cannot be fulfilled if circumstances change.
PRODUCTION LEAD TIMES BEFORE SHIPPING
All our products are printed to order so there is a typical production lead time of 1-3 business days before items are ready to ship, although this can take slightly longer (up to 5 business days) during seasonal spikes such as the run up to Xmas.
Please note we don't hold stock and orders are dispatched directly to you from our factory. Therefore, we cannot offer collections from our offices in Liverpool or from our factory in the North West.
