Christmas Deliveries 2017

Hi Everyone

With all the snow we have had this weekend, it’s starting to feel like Christmas is getting close!

Merry Christmas from R M Labels

We thought this would be a good time to let you know what our plans are for getting your orders to you over the Christmas period.

We will be closing at midday on Friday, 22nd December 2017.  After the Christmas and New Year festivities will be back and raring to go again at 9am on Tuesday, 2nd January 2018.

We are aiming to dispatch all of your orders that are received by close of business on Thursday, 21st December, before we finish for Christmas.

Any orders received on the 22nd or during our shutdown will be dispatched as soon as possible when we get back and these should be with you within a couple of days of our return.

If you need to get hold of any of our products really quickly, please email and let us know so that we can do our best to turn these around as quickly as possible for you.

Thank you for your custom this year.

We all wish you a very happy Christmas and a very prosperous 2018.

Merry Christmas from Ray, Linda, Tash, Harry and Stefan
