ON THE CARDS

House Beautiful (UK) - - Style Planner -

Post­ing real cards rather than send­ing e-cards to friends and fam­ily is back in fash­ion, which is good news for ev­ery­one from en­thu­si­as­tic chil­dren with glit­ter and glue to the char­i­ties that raise money by sell­ing them. Don’t get caught out and miss the last recommended post­ing dates for home and over­seas. The ear­li­est post dead­line is 2 De­cem­ber, which is for Africa and the Mid­dle East. For other des­ti­na­tions, check the Royal Mail website (royal­mail.com).

In the UK, the last post­ing date is 20 De­cem­ber for sec­ond class mail and 21 De­cem­ber for first class. Re­mem­ber to use the cor­rect postage if you’re send­ing any­thing larger than a stan­dard size card, and beat Post Of­fice queues by buy­ing stamps in bulk on­line from postof­ficeshop.co.uk.
