I hope you are all doing well and are staying safe.
I know we don't want to think about it(I sure don't!) but Christmas is coming!
*enter panic flailing mode*
So just a head's up, the holiday delivery deadlines are fast approaching, and the cut offs are much sooner than previous years. I know, it sucks! It's due to the overflow of parcel mail worldwide and all deliveries are taking longer. So please remember, I have no control over the post office, and I can't make them go faster, no matter how much I want to! Also there are no guarantees for delivery times except with DHL, FedEx and UPS. That's from the postal services themselves.
So here's the nitty-gritty. The cut off times allow for my processing time to make my pieces, which in some cases are 1-2 weeks. Many of my items only take a week to make, but I'm expecting a larger volume of orders this holiday season. If you want to be sure you'll get it in time, just drop me a line and ask if I have a miracle I can pull off for you. Can't hurt to ask!
So for Canada, the cut off to receive orders by regular mail is November 24, Xpresspost December 1st, and Priority December 8th. There is the option of FedEx and UPS, but I'll need your location to give you a quote as the price differs per region.
USA the cut off to receive orders by USPS 1st Class is November 25, Priority Express December 1st, and DHL December 8th. For APO, cutoff is November 27 for 1st Class, and Priority Express December 3rd.
For International customers, tracked shipping to Africa, Central and South America the cutoff is November 1st, other international destinations the cutoff is November 9th. DHL International cuttoff is December 7th.
I know, this isn't great news, but it's what things are like right now. So all we can do is take care of each other and stay safe. And remember, if you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me any time.
