Each year, USPS publishes dates by which packages should be posted in order to have a good chance of reaching their destination in time for Christmas. This year, MFF falls in the middle of this period, but we should be able to handle all the important deadlines before and after our travel to the convention.
Please note that we are publishing this information with the intention of serving you to the best of our abilities. Placing your order well before the last minute will dramatically increase your chances of having it arrive in time for the holidays.
Here are the relevant dates:
Monday, Dec. 1 – Final deadline for orders to Africa, Central and South America and the 093 AFO/APO AE zipcode. We will be processing orders on Tues. the 2nd, so orders placed early that day MAY make it in time.
Tuesday, Dec. 9 – Assuming our return from MFF is not delayed by weather, we will be processing orders on this date. Orders placed by NOON (Central time) should be processed and dropped off at the post office in time. This deadline is for first class international mail to ALL international destinations, including military AFO/APO AE zipcodes. It is also the Priority Mail deadline for Asia & the Pacifici Rim, Australia & New Zealand.
Thursday, Dec. 11 – This is the Priority Mail International deadline for Canada, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. Orders placed early Friday the 12th MAY also get posted in time.
Thursday, Dec. 18 – This is the domestic (United States) deadline for both first class and Priority shipping. Orders placed early Friday the 19th MAY also be posted in time.
Orders must be paid in full by the above deadlines in order for them to be shipped out on time.
