Everything is a little topsy turvy in 2020, including the dates you need to think about for posting your Christmas cards! Australia Post has just released information on when to post your Christmas cards and Christmas gifts in 2020 - and it's earlier than you think. 

Of course, Lovely Paper is here to help you get organised - and our luxury letterpress greeting card sets for 2020 are available now in our Christmas Shop. This year, we're also bringing you premium gift wrap as well as letterpress gift tags to luxe up your gift giving game! 

Here we'll share the last posting dates for Christmas in Australia for 2020, whether you're posting Christmas cards within Australia, to NZ or further afield to the US, Europe or Asia.
