When deciding when to mail Christmas cards, timeliness is everything. The hectic nature of the busy holiday season, tends to slow down mail delivery. So to be safe, you should mail your Christmas cards at least two weeks before December 25. To be even safer, mail them on December 1. A bonus to sending your cards this early is it allows friends and loved ones to enjoy displaying your cards earlier in the holiday season!
If you’re having cards made, you’ll want the finished cards in hand before December 1. That way, all you need to do is sign the cards, address the envelopes, add a stamp, and drop your cards into the nearest mailbox. Merry Christmas!
