Royal Mail last posting dates for Christmas 2016By Claire Fuller | Mailing News | 05 December 2016
'Tis the season to be jolly...
It’s almost December and the Christmas advert battle has begun (which is your favourite so far?), festive tunes are being played throughout shopping centres, fairy lights are starting to twinkle and Santa is making his daily visits to shops and garden centres near you…
…The “most wonderful time of the year” is fast approaching, so it must be time to get writing, wrapping & posting. Christmas cards, letters, parcels, gifts, last minute appeals, invoices (!) – you won’t want to miss the post!
