* The above promotional rates are only applicable to stamped and franked mail for the festive period from 26 June 2015 to 17 July 2015.
Customers can purchase stamps for their greeting cards at any post office, Self-service Automated Machines (SAM), postal agents and stamp vendors located islandwide.
SingPost would like to advise customers to post their greeting cards early to avoid the festive rush at the country of destination. Posting early gives senders greater peace of mind and recipients the joy of receiving their cards on time for the festive celebrations.
For customers who wish to mail out packages or cards this festive season, here are some helpful mailing and packaging tips to keep in mind:
- Ensure that addresses are correct and complete. Items may not reach their recipients or may be delayed due to factors such as incorrect or incomplete addresses.
- Ensure that the postage is correct
- Indicate the return address on the back of the envelope, on the flap.
- Use a bigger font size, preferably font size 12.
- Ensure accurate customs declaration for international packages and not to send prohibited or dangerous items.
- Use good quality packaging materials, for example select a box that is strong enough to protect the contents. Leave space for cushioning inside the carton.
- Cushion contents appropriately, for example with bubble wrap or foam to avoid damage during shipping.
- Wrap each item separately when packing more than one item in the same box. Pack tightly to avoid shifting during transit.
