Make your Mailings Merry
Create Christmas Cheer With Envelopes and Parcels
Have you noticed how people appreciate receiving letters and parcels in the post more than ever? These days it’s all about email communication, gift vouchers and being generally busy. Christmas cards and parcels are almost an endangered species, however it means that people will enjoy them even more.
You can make sure your Christmas cards and parcels delight your friends and family with some planning, preparation and a few tips from Avery. Your parcels will be bringing Christmas cheer to loved ones from the moment they receive them to when they open them on Christmas day!
Your Parcels need to travel safe
Think About restrictions overseas
How many times have you found the gift for a family member, only to realise that shipping it to them is going to be too hard or expensive? Unfortunately, this is something you need to take into consideration when selecting gifts that need to be shipped.
Think about the size, shape, weight and value of the gift and don’t forget about custom restrictions if you’re shipping overseas. That beautiful olive oil that you know your Dad will love might not go down very well customs in another country!
Beat the rush
You would think that with fewer people sending parcels, the lines at the post office would be shorter. However in peak Christmas times this is not the case.
Get your parcels and packages ready and shipped according to your delivery time frame guidelines (or even earlier). It’s less stressful knowing that you have some of your Christmas tasks out of the way.
Make the right choice
Choose the right box
When you send out parcels, make sure your box isn't too small or big. The last thing you want is for your gifts to be poking out the top. You also don't want to pay extra for shipping or have your gifts rolling around in a box that is too big.
Heavy items require a good strong box, so make sure you find one substantial enough to suit your heavy gift. Use packaging materials to frame and protect your presents and make sure you seal the box well. Christmas morning just won’t be the same if the present is damaged!
