How to Schedule your Christmas Cards

What’s your favorite part of the holiday season? We adore the sound of Christmas music playing in all the stores, the smell of fresh chocolate chip cookies as they come out of the oven, and how beautiful everyone’s decorative front lawn looks. We know now, more than ever, you want to connect with as many friends and family as you can. 2020’s pandemic made it difficult to be with the ones we love, and as we continue to face these uncertain times, not everyone will be able to see one another this holiday season. That’s where Christmas cards come in! We want to ensure a timely delivery for all of your special messages. Have a stress-free holiday and schedule your greeting cards now!


Reasons to send Christmas mail early:

  • Shipping delays
  • Less stress
  • People love to display their cards
  • Mistakes from rushing
  • More time to shop

Make a list of people that you would like to send Christmas cards to. Get their addresses if you don’t already have them (or have them sent to yourself so that you could hand them out in person). If you have a big list or love to get creative, make sure to give yourself plenty of time to create your masterpieces!


How to schedule your greeting cards:

After you finish personalizing all of your cards and added them to your checkout cart, you can opt in for future delivery! This is the perfect option for people who finished creating their cards early to ensure a stress free and timely delivery.

First, decide if you want your cards to be mailed to yourself or directly to the recipient.

Next, when all of your addresses are inserted, click the yellow button Proceed to Shipping!

Finally, you will be given the option of when to send each card in the form of a miniature calendar. You may send it as soon as tomorrow, or you may schedule a future mailing date. To ensure a timely delivery, The Greeting Card Shop recommends sending your holiday mail the first week of December. For international shipping, we recommend the last week of November.

Note: The date you choose on the calendar is the date in which your order will leave our facility. It is not the arrival date!
