We’ve made the list and checked it two times. Here’s when to ship to hit holiday deadlines. Ok, holiday cheer aside, making sure you know when your customers’ orders need to go out is a crucial part of holiday customer service. The last thing you want is to spoil gift-giving by stating you can get a package there on time and missing that promise because you didn’t know the holiday shipping deadlines for all carriers you use.

So, we’re here to help you end up on the nice list with properly-set holiday shipping service levels. To make sure you are minimizing your shipping costs, we’ve compiled holiday shipping deadlines for all carriers (USPS, FedEx, and UPS) in one handy graphic. Use these graphics to set shipping deadlines on your website, decide if and when to offer free shipping, and help decide which carrier to use.

If you use USPS exclusively, we’ve also created a printable calendar you can put in a conspicuous place to remind you of upcoming deadlines. Get that here.
