Christmas 2023 - Last Shipment Dates

Hello everyone!


It’s been a while since we caught up last – so we’ll take this opportunity to say we hope you have all been well, and enjoying the various card games that we know you all love!

It’s almost December, which means it’s pretty much Christmas – I hope you’ve started to think about your shopping…

With that in mind, we have been informed by Royal Mail of the latest Posting Dates that would give you the best chance possible to receive your letters/parcels before Christmas. Any items posted after those dates would result in your item most likely being delivered after Christmas. Those dates in question are as follows;

These dates are closer to Christmas than we expected, so I would still err on the side of caution and get your orders in in advance if you can, and we’ll do our best to get everything out the door and in the hands of you lovely people.


We have also had similar information from DHL shipments. DHL Express is a much faster service, so orders can be shipped at a later date and still be expected to reach the destination before December 24th – however, this obviously will vary depending on the location. We think the safest option across the board, if you’d like your order before Christmas and you are based outside of the UK, we would recommend that you order before the 8th December. Any orders placed after that date with DHL shipping will still be shipped, but the likelihood of it arriving before Christmas will naturally be less. There is still a chance your order would make it in time, but sadly we can’t guarantee anything.

For UK Customers, the last shipping date for DHL to have the best chance of delivering to you before Christmas would be Wednesday 20th December, so get your orders in before then!


If you have any questions on this, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


If we don’t speak to you before – we hope you have a great December, a fantastic festive period and a Merry Christmas, from all of us here at Tier Zero!
