It’s that time of the year again! We put together a list of shipping deadlines from our lab printing partners to help you prepare for the busy holiday season. Making sure that you know your shipping deadlines can help save you time and money while also ensuring that your clients receive their photos and gifts on time.

Requesting Changes and Cancellations

Our partner labs work extra hard during the holiday season—often printing, packaging, and shipping an order the same day it’s placed. This means that any request for changes needs to be sent within minutes of placing an order or it might not be caught in time.

Approving Orders

Although enabling “Pending Order Approval” in your price list allows you to review orders and make changes before the orders are sent for printing, it also delays sending the orders to the lab. Orders are not submitted for printing until you approve them, so we suggest reviewing and approving all orders as quickly as possible.

Shipping Deadlines

For your convenience, we’ve gathered a list of recommended deadline dates for each of our integrated vendors; most based on arriving before December 25th. Please keep in mind that orders must be placed and approved before the cutoff dates to be delivered in time for the holidays.
