Final Order Date Reminders
Don’t worry, if you’re signed up to our newsletter then we’ll be sending out reminders on product deadlines so you can get your orders in on time. Just a quick reminder that orders placed after the cut-off dates will still be processed, but we cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas. As you can order different products with different cut off dates in the same basket, usually all of the products would need to be completed in order to dispatch all items together. If you need particular elements of your order quicker, please be sure to order them by themselves, or with other products of a similar turnaround time to prevent any delays. Any prints or photo merchandise ordered with a mounting & laminating product after the 11th of December would typically be held until all items are complete which could be after Christmas so please bear this in mind.
