2022 Seasonal shipping deadlines.

November 23rd, 2022
2022 seasonal shipping deadlines. Macro photograph of snowflake

The busy season is still in full swing, but thankfully the end is nearly in sight. To help simplify your end of year sales, we’ve put together a list of shipping deadlines from our integrated lab partners. Planning ahead and observing the shipping deadlines will help you and your clients receive photos and gifts on time, ultimately saving you time, money and headaches during the holiday season. Find your relevant dates below, organized by country and lab partner.

Zenfolio has also created a shipping calculator you can use (and share with your clients) that makes figuring out order deadlines and estimating package arrivals super simple.

The deadlines listed below reflect the latest dates an order can be received by each partner lab to arrive in a timely manner. When order approval is enabled, we recommend that photographers encourage clients to place orders prior to these dates so you will have time to review and approve their orders. If you do not use order approval, these dates can be referenced when setting your client order deadlines.
