Holiday Shipping Cut-Off Dates for 2021


Flagline knows how important it is that your packages (and gifts) arrive on time.  We work hard to make sure everything is turned around as fast as possible.  We still ship as fast as always over the holidays and most orders are processed and shipped the same day (if placed prior to the 6pm eastern time cut-off).  Carriers like USPS, FedEx, and UPS are dealing with much higher volumes than normal and that can lead to unexpected delays and longer transit times.  There can also be unforeseen delays due to weather and/or human error (hopefully not!).  As always please give us a call if you have any questions.

We are expecting this holiday season (2021) to be very heavy with severe delays possible due to labor shortages.  We expect to see more delays than usual this year across all shipping partners and shipping services.

There are NO money back guarantees in place for any shipments during this holiday season with the exception being USPS Express mail.

No shipments will be processed Thursday November 25th.
