Your 2016 holiday ship-by dates

Your 2016 holiday ship-by datesBig thanks to ShipStation for this helpful graphic

Can you believe it’s that time of the year already? Thanksgiving and Black Friday are a month away and Christmas is here in under two months. It’s practically 2017!

But wait. Pump the brakes. Hold your horses. Put the bunny back in the box. Before we get to all that, there’s a lot of shipping that needs to happen. The one-two punch of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and Christmas looming on the horizon means business is about to pick up.

Our friends at ShipStation want you prepared right now. So for all our U.S.-based sellers, they’ve collected the holiday ship by dates for UPS, FedEx, and USPS—in one convenient, easy-to-read infographic. Share it with your fellow entrepreneurs, print it out and pin it in your warehouse, or bookmark it.

This year, ShipStation has made the infographic the perfect fit for a standard laser printer, at 8.5 x 11. Click here to download a printer-friendly PDF version. You can also save this as a desktop background and always have it available.

If you plan on using USPS services this year, get ahead of the game and order your supplies now. For ginormous orders, call (800) 610-8734. You can also use that number to set-up standing monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly orders so you don’t have to use USPS.com or drop in to the post office. Of course, these aren’t the only dates that matter.
