2012 Holiday Shipping deadlines

Thu 1 Nov 2012 - Filed under: Not a Journal., , , , | Leave a Comment | Posted by: Gavin

Here are the last mailing dates before Christmas/your holiday of choice from the US Post Office.

Media Mail shipping is included in all our prices and Priority Mail can be added.

Remember that all mail slows down at the holidays. Media Mail packages are only included by the post office if and when there is space so they can languish for days during the holidays. If you are ordering after December 1st, 2012, and you would like your books to arrive for Christmas we recommend choosing Priority Mail.

You can also buy Gift Certificates to Small Beer or Weightless.
