Seido offers the fastest service in Japan, that's a fact. But we don't do magic either and while under control, the covid situation has imposed some limits, so to avoid any bad surprise here is our schedule for December!
- Made to Order items (embroidered belts, made-to-order Dogi/Iaito, etc.): Order before November 22nd and you will be delivered before Christmas.
- In-stock products shipped via FedEx, DHL, or UPS: the last chance to get items with embroideries/engravings delivered before Christmas is December 16th.
- Because of the covid situation, 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 16th will ship on the 17th.
- 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 the customs. Hence, on-time order delivery cannot be guaranteed 100% so please don't wait until the last minute to order!
