Adafruit Holiday Shipping Deadlines 2019

Adafruit holiday shipping 2019 blog

It might seem like you just swept away your Halloween cobwebs, but its time to start planning your holiday projects, presents and pageantry.

Adafruit wants to make sure everyone is well prepared with their electronic goodies this upcoming season.

The Adafruit Shipping Department works hard to get your orders out as quickly as we can, but once they’re in the hands of our carriers they’re out of our control. Carriers have been struggling to keep up with the sharp rise in online orders. UPS, FedEX, DHL and USPS all experienced delivery delays over the last few years.

So all the Adafruit Shippers say: Please be sure you get your gifts early! Order as soon as you can! Once you place your order we’ll ship like the wind!

If you forgot to heed this warning and ran out of time, Gift Certificates make a great gift for the maker in your life.
