Factories in China will be closed for approximately 2-4 weeks for Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations which will cause delays in lead times and quotations. Different factories have different lead times and closures.
Last shipping dates to UK range from mid to 23rd January and most factories are closing from 19th January and returning around 5th February. So first despatch dates AFTER CNY will be around 20th February
Items most affected are:
- Enamel products inc trolley keyrings
- Silicon wristbands
- Bespoke products
We can of course advise and quote specific lead times as required. As a rule of thumb, we would recommend all Far Eastern orders are placed before 21st December allowing 48 hours for artwork approvals prior to us finishing for the Christmas break, enabling delivery prior to CNY
