Christmas 2018

Last Order Dates and Christmas Closure 2018



All of our sewn tactical equipment is hand made by myself, and therefore it takes some time for orders to get processed. All of our 3D printed orders must be printed by our machines, then processed by us before being shipped out. We do not carry stock of these items- that is not how our business model works, which is how we are able to offer full customisation on everything and keep our prices low. Therefore if you are looking at buying any of our items for Christmas please plan ahead. Every year we get people emailing us two days before Christmas, assuming that we are like Amazon with a warehouse full of products ready to go at the drop of a hat. We’re not, everything is personally made for you. We don’t want anyone’s Christmas to be ruined by presents not turning up on time, so please order early, and if you’re not sure drop us an email and we’ll do what we can to help you.


Below is a list of our last recommended ordering dates for our various different product categories for various parts of the world. These dates are so that we can get your order made up and then shipped before Royal Mail’s last recommended shipping dates for pre-Christmas delivery. If you are ordering a combination of things use the longest lead time- we do not part ship.


N.B. We are trying to get our lead times as low as possible- these dates are to account for the worse case scenarios, and also to take into consideration the fact that our office will be closed for a week in November. If the deadline for your country has passed, still feel free to drop us an email and we can see if we can get your order out in time.


Blastersmiths UK Ltd will be closed for a Christmas Break from 1200 on December 21st until 0900 Wednesday 2nd January 2019. Any orders placed in this time will be treated as having been placed on the 2nd January for lead times purposes. Any orders placed before the break but not dispatched will have their lead times paused whilst we are closed, then resumed when we open again. There will be no email or Facebook replies during this period- this is our chance to have a break and catch a breather. We love you guys and all your enthusiasm, and this break means that we can come back fully charged for a glorious 2019 :D


Thanks to everyone for their support and custom over the years, and we hope everyone has a happy holiday!

*Canada: we are already having problems with deliveries to Canada taking far longer than expected. Royal Mail have reported some problems, and we are not sure if this last posting date is supposed to reflect that or not. Either way, we strongly advise anyone trying to order to Canada to do so as early as possible.
