CHRISTMAS LAST ORDER DATES
Ordering for Christmas?
Quires and Places is a "print on demand" site which uses Printful to fulfil the vast majority of our products. Printful has fulfilment centres around the world, and products are printed and fulfilled from varying centres, depending on the product.
Also because of the print-on-demand nature, orders take slightly longer than as the product is only printed once you order it.
As such there is no one-size-fits-all for last order dates. It is - we're afraid - frustratingly complicated.
IF IN DOUBT, ORDER NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
Below is a table of products and the fulfilment centres from which those products are fulfilled.
You can use that to cross-reference with the dates below, to work out the last order date for Christmas depending on
a) where you are in the world, and
b) which fulfilment centre is available
We specify below countries in which our main customer base resides. If your country is not listed below, please email us.
