2016 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

The Christmas countdown is on! December 25th is quickly approaching, but don't worry, there's still time to order and receive your gifts from Goulet Pens.

We offer USPS and FedEx shipping options. Our team works tirelessly to get your orders packed up, with our usual slightly ridiculous amount of care, and shipped as soon as we possibly can. We're here Monday through Friday working to get packages shipped out of our warehouse within 1-2 business days after your order is placed.

Our office will be closed on Friday December 23rd for the long Christmas weekend and will open up again on Tuesday December 27th. Since we don't offer FedEx delivery on Saturdays and Christmas is on a Sunday this year, you'll want to pay close attention to our last order-by dates suggested below.

We cannot guarantee delivery times, so just to be safe, here are the order-by dates we recommend to get your packages to you in time for Christmas. The sooner the better!

Within the United States:

Wednesday December 14th: FedEx Ground. These orders will be shipped by the 16th. If you're in Alaska or Hawaii, you may want to try to get it in even sooner.

Thursday December 15th: USPS First-Class. We'll get these out the door by the 19th. This method is only available for lightweight parcels under $300.

Sunday December 18th: USPS Priority. We'll get these out the door by the 20th, to arrive to you between the 21st-24th depending on your location. If you're in Alaska or Hawaii, you may want to try to get it in even sooner.

Monday December 19th: FedEx 2-Day. We'll get these out the door by the 20th, to arrive to you on the 22nd. If you order by 10am EST on the 20th, we'll also ship these same day to arrive to you on the 22nd.

Tuesday December 20th: FedEx Standard Overnight. We'll get these out the door by the 21st, to arrive to you on the 22nd. If you order by 10am EST on the 21st, we'll also ship these same day to arrive to you on the 22nd.


International:

Thursday December 1st: USPS First-Class and USPS Priority International. We'll caution that these shipping methods may be a stretch depending on your location - we really can't guarantee on-time delivery with these methods, and tracking isn't very reliable. We really recommend the USPS Express or one of the FedEx options instead.

Sunday December 11th: FedEx International Economy. These orders will be shipped by the 12th and should arrive to you in time for Christmas, pending customs clearance.

Monday December 12th: 
FedEx International Priority and USPS Express International. 
These orders will be shipped by the 13th and should arrive to you in  time for Christmas, pending customs clearance.


Again, these are just our recommendations, and not a guarantee. The sooner you can place your order, the more likely it will arrive to you in time for Christmas.  For more information on FedEx guarantees during the holidays, you can check out their website.

Our team will do everything we can to get your gifts to your door in time. Let us know if there's anything we can do to help. Happy shopping!
