Cut-off Dates for Art Shed Christmas 2023

Here at Art Shed, we do our best to ensure a quick turnaround on all orders, so that your package gets to the postie, and then to you, as quickly as possible. However, dispatch time doesn’t mean delivery time and once it is picked up from our warehouse, the time it takes to get to you is out of our hands.

This year we recommend that you place your orders a few days before the following dates:

  • Standard Post to VIC, NSW, ACT, SA, TAS & QLD: 18th December

  • Express Post to VIC, NSW, ACT, SA, TAS & QLD: 21st December

  • Standard Post to metro WA & NT: 15th December

  • Express Post to metro WA & NT: 20th December

  • New Zealand International Post: 7th December


For regional or remote areas please allow extra time.

It is important to note that these dates are Australia Post's own recommendation, but they are NOT guaranteed. For more information, please visit the Australia Post Website.

Australia Post will attempt delivery of your item and if there is no one at home, they will leave a collection card so you can collect the parcel from your local post office.

If there is somewhere safe to leave your delivery, please make sure the 'Signature Required' box is not ticked.

Larger items are sent via Startrack Express. Their couriers will attempt a delivery to your street address and if there is no one at home, they will leave a card so you can arrange a more suitable delivery time.
