YOUR GUIDE TO SHOPPING WITH WBC THIS CHRISTMAS

The great news is they haven’t canceled Christmas! Here at WBC, we want it to be, if not your most successful year, certainly one that removes the stresses and maximizes the opportunities for you to sell well, and sell big.

 

You may have already started planning your gift offering, but if you haven’t, now’s the perfect time to start.

 

This is our handy guide to shopping with WBC this season. It includes last order dates for branding, our opening times and how to make sure your order arrives without delay.

 

Any questions we haven’t thought of, tweet us, Facebook us, email us, or phone us on 020 7737 4040. We’re here to help!


There’s a lot of essential information about our products online that’s designed to save you time and effort when deciding your gift offering.

You’ll find all the basic information on pricing, box sizes and pack quantities but also useful things like the amount of shred to use in your Christmas hamper or the exact shipping outer you need to send it.

You’ll also find additional information about what our products are made of and their sustainability credentials.


Using the zoom functions on our website will help you see product quality, finish and detail in high resolution. If you still want to see a sample, call us on 020 7737 4040 and we’ll be happy to organize them for you.

 

You’ll only pay for the single unit but please give us 3 to 4 days for delivery.


To keep our service at lightning speed, your order is taken on-screen and immediately transferred to the warehouse for picking and packing.

It’s then loaded onto trailers which leave as soon as they’re full, making it difficult to stop it, add to it, or change it.

Don’t worry, if you’ve forgotten something off your order, call us, and we’ll help you out.


We pay for a top-notch B2B service that comes with certain stipulations to ensure you get the very best service possible.

Please make sure your order is sent to a manned delivery address during office hours 8:30 am - 6:00 pm Monday to Friday.

Your order will be sent with DHL and you’ll get a link to keep track of its arrival but leave 1 - 3 working days for delivery during busy periods.

If you need help, give us a shout anytime.


Of course you can! But this needs to be arranged with our customer service team in advance. Contact our office on 020 7737 4040 so we can provide you with the correct collection details along with arrival information for social distancing.

 


Overprinting our gift packaging with a company name or logo using our printing service, goes into overdrive at Christmas. Read our blog on how you can boost sales by offering corporate gifting to local businesses. To ensure speedy delivery of your printing job before Christmas, get your order to us by the following dates:

 

  • CORKSCREWS: 6th Nov
  • LASER ENGRAVING: 4th Dec
  • SCREEN PRINTING (gift boxes, tags, wooden boxes): 4th Dec
  • RIBBON: 30th Dec
  • PACKING TAPE: 25th Nov

 

If you miss those dates, give us a call and we’ll always try our best to squeeze you in.

 


We will be picking and packing (and playing annoying Christmas music) right up until Monday 23rd December when we will take a short break and be back with you on the 4th January.


The great news is you can order online 24/7 by visiting wbc.co.uk.

NEXT DAY DELIVERY
