Post early

Customers are advised to post their greeting cards and presents early to avoid the festive rush at the country of destination. Posting early gives senders greater peace of mind and recipients the joy of receiving their items on time for the festive celebrations.

Mailing and packing tips

For customers who wish to mail out packages or cards this festive season, here are some helpful mailing and packaging tips to keep in mind:

  • Ensure that addresses are correct and complete. Items may not reach their recipients or may be delayed due to factors such as incorrect or incomplete addresses.
  • Indicate the return address on the back of the envelope, on the flap.
  • Use a bigger font size, preferably font size 12.
  • Ensure accurate customs declaration for international packages and not to send prohibited or dangerous items.
  • Use good quality packaging materials, for example select a box that is strong enough to protect the contents. Leave space for cushioning inside the carton.
  • Cushion contents appropriately, for example with bubble wrap or foam to avoid damage during shipping.
  • Wrap each item separately when packing more than one item in the same box. Pack tightly to avoid shifting during transit.
