Whilst we encourage you to place your letter orders well in advance of Christmas, we don't begin to actually post the letters until closer to the festive season. Letters will be printed, packed and stored safely until the first shipping dates - which are as follows:
UK: Monday 30th November
International: Monday 23rd November
Please do not place a letter order with Christmas Letters from Santa after the last postal dates listed below as we cannot guarantee that they will reach you in time for Christmas:
Our letters are personalized with the information that you provide us, making it a perfect Christmas surprise for your little ones to read. Each letter is folded and sealed within an authentic, textured envelope, printed with name and address and stamped ‘From the North Pole,’ for that extra bit of Christmas magic. Delivery is free to anywhere in the world and will be sent via first class post or the equivalent. Please ensure that you check all of the details on the screen proof provided as once the order has been paid for and processed to print, there will not be the opportunity to change the letter information.
We are able to take orders now so please do not delay as we plan to be very busy over this Christmas period. In the UK, Santa Claus will not however, dispatch his letters before the first posting dates listed above unless you've purchased the express addon. If you have not purchased the express addon then your order will be stored until it is time for it to be dispatched within the Christmas post. Please check the final posting dates for your given country to ensure the letter reaches you in time.
Please Note: Unless you purchased the Express Order addon, your letters will not be dispatched until the first posting dates above. All orders will be dispatched by Royal Mail for both the UK and the rest of the world. If your order is being sent to the UK or Europe, please allow 7 days from date of order for your order to arrive. International orders outside of Europe may take a little longer so please be patient and allow up to 12 days, given that it is also a very busy time. You can follow the status of your order using our Order Search Page

Unfortunately, Royal Mail is not a tracked service therefore we cannot take responsibility for any letters which are missing in the post, however we will endeavor to send you a replacement in time to reach you before Christmas.
