Holiday Shopping Tips

Prepping for the Holidays / Shopping and Shipping Tips / Meredith Collie Paper

With the holiday shopping season under way, here are a few important shopping tips to keep in mind.

12.9.20 Update / Orders placed at this time will most likely not arrive prior to Christmas due to longer than usual production requirements and shipping delays.

Important Holiday Dates

November 9, 2020 / Last day for international orders for Christmas delivery. Orders placed after this day may not arrive in time. 

November 27-30, 2020 / Black Friday-Cyber Monday Sale. Sign up for the Holiday VIP list for details.

December 4, 2020 / Last day for domestic orders for Christmas delivery. Orders placed after this day may not arrive in time.

December 16, 2020 - January 5, 2020 / Holiday Break / I will be taking a holiday break and while the shop will be open, orders will not be processed or ship until I return.

Production Timelines

Production timelines are 7-10 business days for all personalized orders. Please note that due to increased volume during the holiday shopping season, those timelines get stretched to the max. 

Certain items in the shop will ship separately from stationery items. Included in that list are the following:

  1. Journals and notebooks
  2. Tumblers
  3. Keychains
  4. Pencil Pouches
  5. Hand Towels
  6. Coasters

Should your order contain a mix of personalized stationery and gifts, you will receive multiple shipping notifications based on the varying production times of the items in your order.

Rush Orders

A rush order fee is not available at this time. Please plan accordingly.

Holiday Packages


Shipping is USPS first class with tracking. Faster shipping options are available during check out but please note this will only increase the time it takes for the item to ship from me to you. It will not increase the production time.

Current COVID 19 and other delivery issues with USPS persist and can cause delays in delivery. Please review the shipping policy for additional details on how to handle delivery issues. It's important to note that once the package is picked up by USPS, it is in USPS custody and there is very little I can do to help provide answers.

USPS has instituted a holiday season pricing change effective October 18 through December 27, 2020.
