  • Links to SKUs

  • Sales forecasts

This will help us plan our activity in the busy season.

27th November - Cyber Monday

Last Shipping Times

The last shipping dates for some countries start as soon as 7th of December. Please consider adding messaging to your store and marketing messages to take this in to consideration so customers can make an informed decision about buying presents to arrive in time for Christmas.

Inbound stock

With the large influx of stock we will receive for Christmas campaigns we require delivery with an inbound goods notification two weeks before expected ship out dates to ensure it is booked in. We cannot guarantee that any stock delivered after 1st December will be booked in prior to Christmas.

Delivery deadline for pre-Christmas booking in 1st December.

Stock for January projects can be delivered in December, and will be booked in ready for dispatch on its allotted release date.
