Last post dates for 2011 – 2011.11.09

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Hi everyone,

For those of you in the UK, here is Royal Mail’s last postage dates for 2011. As you can see, some of the dates have passed or are very near! But don’t worry, as e cards can be sent in a matter of minutes, you can still send all of your loved ones a Christmas e card that they will receive on the day you schedule delivery! This is a brilliant reason to choose to send ecards to your loved ones this year.

Another great reason to send your loved ones a Christmas ecard is that they can save you money. It costs 46p for a first class stamp in the UK, so if you have over 30 Christmas cards to send, this is going cost you at least double the cost of a Katie’s Cards subscription, on top of the price of your Christmas cards. A subscription to Katie’s Cards only cost £7 and for that you can send as many cards as you like for a whole year!
