You can choose the date on which the card is sent when you choose the ‘Send to Them’ option before checkout, and then click the ‘Send later’ icon. The arrival date is based on Royal Mail’s First Class delivery service so cards should arrive the following day (not including Sundays & Bank Holidays).
If for example, you would like a card to arrive in time for a birthday on a Saturday, you should select the preceding Thursday as the ‘send date’ and it will arrive on the Friday. The delivery service we use for single Greeting cards arrives on the following working day in 95% of cases, so you may prefer to allow 2 days for delivery to be on the safe side!
Any cards ordered with the 'Send to me' option will be dispatched to you as soon as they have been printed. If you choose this option, your customised card will be sent to you with its envelope in a larger outer envelope so that you can hand-write the card and address and hand over to the recipient, or post yourself.
