Seido offers the fastest service in Japan, that's a fact. But we don't do magic either and the international situation has imposed some limits, so to avoid any bad surprises here is our schedule for December!
- Custom products (embroidered Belts/Dogi, Iaito, etc.): Order before November 22nd and you will be delivered before Christmas (some products may have longer production times, please be careful when ordering).
- In-stock products shipped via FedEx, DHL, or UPS: the last chance to get items with embroideries/engravings delivered before Christmas is December 15th.
- Because of the covid situation and the Ukraine war, significant delays are to be expected with national postal services, so we do not guarantee delivery before Christmas for the standard shipping method (small package/Epacket). Please make sure to select express shipping at checkout.
We usually deliver in 4 days in Europe and North America. Our entire team will be focused on preparing your orders, and all orders placed on the 15th will ship on the 16th.
- We'll be open up until December 28th, then closed from the 29th to January 4th, for our winter holidays. Of course, email support will be slower but maintained the whole time.
Finally, please understand that our carriers don't employ magical reindeer, and Santa Claus isn't working at customs. Hence, on-time order delivery cannot be guaranteed 100% so please don't wait until the last minute to order!
