Last posting dates for Christmas 2017

LAST RECOMMENDED POSTING DATES
when buying from Retrofanattic.



These are the last recommended posting dates for your greeting cards and parcels to arrive on time to both UK and overseas addresses.

That means if a parcel is dispatched after these dates, it is not guaranteed that you will receive it before Christmas. 

You will find in this article the last posting dates for Royal Mail, Parcelforce, MyHermes, UPS and Yodel.


What courier does Retrofanattic use?

- I use Royal Mail, or MyHermes if a courier is needed (big or heavy items), for the eBay shop. You can ask me to use another courier if the Christmas date does not suit you, subject to revision in postage price.

- I use Royal Mail, or Parcelforce / MyHermes if a courier is needed (multiple purchases that result in a big or heavy parcel), for the Etsy shop

- For retrofanattic.com, I use Royal Mail when the parcel is less than 2 kg and no bigger than a Medium Parcel. UK customers choose at checkout their favourite courier in all other cases. Overseas customers, please ask me for a postage quote.

Please note that if you buy several items, the parcel may have to be sent with a courier, so refer to the courier's Christmas dates instead of Royal Mail's dates. 

You can ask me to use another courier if the Christmas date does not suit you, subject to revision in postage price.

Please note that the dates for international destinations do not take into account the possible delays if your parcel is held by the custom authorities of your country. These delays vary according to the nature of the parcel, the state, etc...
