The big holiday rush is nearly over. We’re exhilarated and just plain happy to see so many great books getting made. More U.S. holidays are coming up and we wanted to let you know how they’ll affect your bookmaking over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
Blurb HQ will be quiet on December 24, 25, 31, and January 1. What this means is that none of these days will be considered a business day with regard to book production. Please plan accordingly, recognizing that books require 5 to 6 business days to print. Likewise, our shipping partners will also be operating on limited holiday schedules. (Check out the UPS holiday calendar here). You should allow extra business days to compensate for books made during this time if you have specific deadlines in mind.
Naturally, you can still make and order books, peruse the Forums, and submit a request to our Customer Support team. Don’t forget, you can always check your book’s status on your personal Order History page. Once you receive a shipping confirmation by email, you can track your book’s progress by a tracking number if UPS is delivering your book.
Here’s to 2008 and all that it brings.
