Self Publishing Holiday Printing & Shipping Schedule

Santa Claus may be able to travel around the world in the blink of an eye, but books can’t!  Even with lightning fast print-on-demand technology, books still need a certain amount of time for manufacturing and shipping.

As the holiday season approaches, book production reaches peak capacity as hundreds of thousands of authors from all corners of the globe order copies of their books for family, friends, and relatives. What a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season — with a freshly published book in the hands of your loved ones!

We want to be sure your season is filled with holiday cheer, so if you plan on ordering copies of your published book for delivery in time for Christmas, please place your order no later than December 1, 2009.

Sure, your books will probably arrive a few days early, but that’s better than a few hours late, right?  This is for domestic ground shipping within the continental United States.  If you’re aiming for a different holiday, and/or if you live outside the continental United States, adjust your ordering date accordingly.

We’re assuming an average shipping timeframe via UPS of 5 days, but keep in mind — UPS becomes over-burdened during the holiday season, too.
