Holiday Deadlines 2020

Mon 23 Nov 2020 - Filed under: Not a Journal., , , , | Posted by: Gavin

Time for our annual posting of the USPS Holiday Shipping Deadlines.

First: LCRW subscription prices will be rising on January 1, 2021.

Second: the Small Beer office will be closed from December 23 – January 4, 2021. It is unlikely we will ship over that period. Need books? We can still help:

  1. Weightless Books is always here for you with DRM-free multi-format ebooks — which can hadily be sent as gifts on the date you specify.
  2. Want more ebooks? We can help you with that.
  3. Audiobooks: we have them.
  4. Bookshop can ship books and toys to you or direct to your family and friends. We’re always adding book recs there.
  5. Book Moon will be open.

So here are the last (domestic) order dates for Small Beer Press. (International shipping deadlines.) Along with a reminder that orders include free first class (LCRW) or media mail (books) shipping in the USA.

And the annual reminder:

Media Mail parcels are the last ones to go on trucks. If the truck is full, Media Mail does not go out until the next truck. And if that one’s full, too . . . it could be very late in December before there’s space. So, if you’d like to guarantee pre-holiday arrival, please add Priority Mail:

Domestic Mail Class/Product Deadline
 Media Mail (estimate, not guaranteed) Dec. 12
 First Class Mail (LCRW/chapbooks) Dec. 18
 Priority Mail Dec. 19
 Priority Mail Express Dec. 23

What are we talking about? Ordering books. (And we always have a few of these around.)
