What is a Delivery In-Hands Date?

Delivery In Hands Date for Promotional Products

A Delivery In-Hands Date or just in-hands date is the absolute last day that your promotional products can be delivered by. For example if your Trade Show is on Saturday May 23rd, then your in-hands date should be Friday May 22th.

Should I Really Tell You the Absolute Last Date? Or Add in Delivery Buffer Room?

YES. Tell us your last possible date to receive your products, especially if it's a rush order. We will ship your promotional products as soon as they are ready to be received by you, but there is no reason for the added cost of a rush order or expedite shipping if there is no particular delivery date needed. You can also review our standard production times for more information. If we commit to your promotional products being delivered on your in-hands dates, that's the day they will be delivered, we do not guarantee our in-hands delivery date even though we make 99% of our delivery in-hands dates.

Can you Deliver to my Trade Show Hotel?

Often our customers may be traveling to a hotel for their trade show and we will ship your promotional items to the hotel so that you don't have to travel with 500 tote bags and 2,000 pens. This is often done, please just specify your request in your order notes. We strongly recommend contacting the hotel to make sure that they can accept the packages on your behalf and that they will hold your products for you.
