If you’ve been making books with us since the early days, you’re no stranger to what’s known around these parts as The Holiday Crush. We joke internally that Q4 planning starts on January 2. Only it’s really not a joke at all. During the holiday season, things get more than a little hectic around here, and across our global print network.
We don’t want the seasonal rush to affect your order, so if you’re planning a large order for the holidays, now’s the time we look you in the eye and ask you to get that order in early. How early? We’d prefer you order by October 30, 2009, please. After that date, if you’re ordering more than 25 books, please add an extra three business days to your estimated delivery date.
Don’t worry, we’ll be posting the complete lineup of holiday shipping deadlines to the website soon.
To help you get your large book projects in early, we’re offering a significant discount on all orders of 10 or more books placed before 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 30, 2009. As with our standard discounts, these special discounts apply toward orders of the same book and cover type.
Here’s the deal:
Orders of 10 to 199 books will receive an automatic 15% discount (up from the standard 10%)
Orders of 200 to 400 will receive an automatic 20% discount (up from the standard 15%)
Orders of 401+ will also receive a discount based on the specifics of a particular order. To receive a discounted large order price quote, please place your custom quote request here
These discounts are also listed on our pricing page here.
And remember, if you’re placing a large order, don’t forget that proof book. You don’t want an errant typo to ruin your order!
