The Urban Flair 2020 Holiday Order Deadlines
Holiday Order Deadlines For 2020
This holiday season will serve as a little more challenging than most for all online businesses.
Not only will we be doing our best to manage the normal holiday rush, we’re also going to be facing the reality of potential supply, manufacturing and shipping delays that COVID is still inevitably causing industry-wide.
Your patience and understanding during these continued uncertain times are greatly appreciated!
While my printing partners are diligently working to help me keep processing times as short as possible, please do keep the possibility of unforeseen delays in mind when ordering this year, especially if you need something by a specific date/time.
Over the course of the next few days, I will be working to add appropriate *estimated* “Order By” dates for this holiday season. On my Etsy shop, they will appear at the very top of each listing’s product description. On my website, this will appear under the “Add To Cart” button.
To ensure that your orders make it to you when you need them, I recommend ordering at least 2 weeks in advance to compensate for any potential longer fulfillment times or shipment delays.
Shipping carrier deadlines continue to be impacted due to the onslaught of online orders during the COVID-19 pandemic and as a result delivery times still haven’t quite caught up. These delays impact everything from manufacturing to suppliers to order fulfillment.
While it is impossible for me to 100% predict the unprecedented uncertainty that comes with this holiday season, I promise I am doing my best to factor this potential in to how I’m gauging order deadlines this year. Please do keep checking back as they are subject to change at any time.
US orders will always ship via USPS First Class Mail. USPS’s holiday deadlines can be found here.
Thank you all so much again! I appreciate you!
