Time to Think Holidays
We are happy to be finding our new rhythm at Webster Ink. It includes familiar faces and processes, in addition to face masks, sanitizing, and fewer in-person customer visits. There is something very comforting about regaining familiar work rhythms after so much time at home.
With all the shifts and unexpected changes that this year brought, we are often surprised when we realize the date. It’s mid October! And that means that now is the ideal time to start thinking about holiday orders.
Now? But it’s only October! Here’s why now is a great time to start pulling together holiday orders:
– Right now our turn-around time is less than two weeks. In November and December there is often a holiday rush that pushes that turn-around time nearly a week longer.
– Initial contact with Webster Ink is not the end of the story! Finalizing order details such as apparel style, preferred color, and final artwork could take a day if you have all your ducks in a row. More commonly, however, it takes a week or two.
– Ordering custom screen printed items for holiday gifts is a great way to support our local family-owned business, choose ethically produced products (options include organic, made in USA, fair trade, etc.), and get your creative juices flowing.
– Shipping times this holiday season are likely to be less fast and predictable. Get your gifts in the mail before the last-minute holiday rush!
If you want your goods in time for Christmas, we need your approval on final order details by December 1st. You should plan on starting the conversation with us by November 20th. Final order information includes apparel style number with color, final artwork, and size breakdowns.
