Christmas & Black Friday Delivery Info

If you are buying an old map as a gift this holiday season, please read at least the first few sentences on this page.

Worldwide postal and courier systems have struggled to keep up with demand for the last couple of years, and this year is likely to be the same.

Please buy your maps as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Christmas 2022 delivery deadlines

The deadline for guaranteed Christmas delivery has now passed.

Unframed maps with Express Delivery (available at checkout) may still arrive in time, but it's not guaranteed.

My personalised and custom made maps have been very popular this year, and we're still working through a backlog of orders from Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

New orders for personalised and custom made maps will not arrive in time for Christmas.

Please get in touch if you want to discuss the delivery deadline for a specific order or country.

UK delivery deadline

In the UK, you can order with free delivery up until 16 December and your order should arrive in time for Christmas. Free delivery after the 16th may still arrive in time, but it gets riskier with each passing day.

Express delivery should extend this deadline to around 20 December, but it depends if the courier services continue to deliver on time in the last week before Christmas.

Large framed maps (40 inches/100cm and larger) should ideally be ordered before 14 December to arrive in time for Christmas.

US delivery deadline

In the US, you can order with free delivery up until 11 December and your order should arrive in time for Christmas. Free delivery after the 11th may still arrive in time, but it will get riskier with each passing day.

Express delivery should be extend this deadline to around 19 December.

If you want to order a large framed map in the US, please order ASAP. These orders will be at the mercy of the logistics networks and may not arrive in time for Christmas.

EU delivery deadline

Inside the EU, you can order with free delivery up until 18 December and your order should arrive in time for Christmas. Free delivery after the 18th may still arrive in time, but it gets riskier with each passing day.

Express delivery should extend this deadline to around 20 December, but it depends if the courier services continue to deliver on time in the last week before Christmas.

For large framed maps over 40 inches/100cm, please get in touch before you order.

Singapore, Ireland, Australia, Canada...

In Singapore, you can order framed and unframed maps fairly safely up until 20 December.

In Ireland, you can order framed and unframed maps fairly safely up until 20 December.

In Australia, because of major issues with logistics networks there, it will depend on the delivery address. Get in touch before you order.

In Canada, my free delivery deadline has already passed, but express delivery should be fine for framed and unframed maps until 16 December.

Last minute Christmas gift delivery

If you really need a map to arrive in time, and you've left it quite late, please get in touch and I'll do my best to help you out.

No matter where you are in the world, I can usually get a map to you in 24-48 hours, but next-day courier services are very expensive around Christmas time.

I may be able to get an unframed map to you that you can then frame locally, or with a frame ordered from Amazon.

Worldwide delivery deadlines

Most of my maps are produced at locally. This means if you're in Australia, your map will be made and posted from Australia. Or if you're in the UK, your map will be made and posted from the UK.

I produce and dispatch maps from the following locations: UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, multiple locations in the EU, Singapore and Mexico.

This means that your map shouldn't get stuck in the post, and there will not be any import duties or taxes to pay.

For other countries, such as Brazil, China or India, I would strongly recommend ordering your maps as early as possible.

Please get in touch if you'd like a delivery estimate for a specific country, or if you'd like to ask about expedited delivery.
