Helpful guidelines for sending your holiday cards and packages


I want to help you be as prepared as possible this season. With shipping delays already starting in the USA, I'm sure there'll be delays for Canada Post this season. 

Being a small business/one person run show, my recommendation to avoid any disappointments is to shop early, shop with small local businesses, and ship as early as you can. 

Below is a chart taken directly from Canada Posts website. These are guidelines only, but I hope this helps you plan your Christmas season.
