Ordering Seasonal Products from Aimtrac Group

Posted on October 30, 2020

For any company involved in design or print Christmas always starts that bit earlier so we can be ready when businesses turn their thoughts to the party season. However, Christmas 2020 is shaping up to be vastly different to any other year. We are trying our best to get in the festive mood but let’s face it - it’s tricky. There’s a fine line at the moment between getting organised for December and getting by on reduced Christmas budgets and wondering what on earth there is to celebrate.

That being said we always try to err on the side of positivity and it is our firm belief that we need to make the most of any celebratory occasion as much as possible. So, behind the scenes we have been getting moderately festive for a few weeks. We have already been working on orders for corporate Christmas cards, 2021 calendars and company diaries. Sadly the corporate Christmas party invites may have to wait until next year. 

With everything else that is going on we understand that businesses might prefer to hand over their Christmas ordering to a reliable resource partner - this is where we come in. 

Ordering Christmas related items from us doesn’t have to be stressful. We are here to take the strain for you and reassure you that your festive cards, diaries and calendars will arrive on time. We can even design digital Christmas cards which many companies may prefer given the ongoing workplace difficulties. 

Obviously we recommend ordering sooner rather than later. Often what takes the most time is determining the design so bear this in mind when factoring in when you want to order. 

One of the most important things to consider when ordering seasonal products is the time you need to despatch to your customers. Please note that it is likely to be much busier this year for Royal Mail and other delivery companies so think of this too when estimating when you need any printed products by.

The dates for Royal Mail recommended last posting dates for 2021 are outlined below with the vast majority of other courier companies closed for the bank holiday dates:

  • Wednesday 18th December – 2nd Class and 2nd Class Signed For
  • Friday 20th December – 1st Class and 1st Class Signed For and Royal Mail Tracked 48
  • Saturday 21st December – Royal Mail Tracked 24
  • Monday 23rd December – Special Delivery Guaranteed

Custom Seasonal Gifts

When ordering anything that is company specific then getting the design agreed up front will usually save you time on the print process overall. If you cannot decide on a design, then we can help with that too. Utilising our print design experts and ordering your printed products through us too can save time overall as we’re not having to talk to third parties to get artwork signed off or processed.

Once your design has been approved then we will be in a position to give you an estimated completion for your print products. We’ll arrange delivery from a selection of turnaround times that suit you.

Saving Money on Seasonal Print Products

We understand that this year things are especially difficult and everyone is feeling the pinch. This is one of the reasons why we’re currently offering a 10% off seasonal product orders. Contact us for more information about this offer which is running until midnight on 30th November 2020

The main message here is not to panic. The chances are we’ll be able to help in some way, even if you think you’ve left it too late. If in doubt contact us and we would be happy to see if we can match your requirements.
