Important dates for EOY & our annual summer break:

It’s been another big year at H&B – it’s hard to believe that the end of 2018 is just around the corner! On this note, we have some important dates to share with you.

If you need your order before we shut up shop for 2018, keep in mind:


  • Print orders being collected from the studio must be ordered no later than Tuesday the 18th of December
  • Print orders being mailed out within Australia must be ordered no later than Friday the 14th of December
    A note on postal orders: delivery times at this time of year can be a tad unpredictable, so if you need your order before Christmas we suggest placing your order as soon as possible and/or opting for Express Post.

Scanning & art reproduction

  • Full service art reproductions must be confirmed (and artwork dropped off at the studio) no later than Friday the 7th of December.
  • Basic/raw scans must be confirmed (and artwork dropped off at the studio) no later than Tuesday the 18th of December.

What happens if I miss these cut-off dates?

Get in touch with us anyway! We’ll do our best to help you out. Workload allowing, we’ll be taking orders after these dates and will do our darndest to have them completed before we close for 2018. This said, it’s called the silly season for a reason – so best to get your order in as early as possible ;)

Summer closure dates

Our last working day for the year is Saturday the 22nd of December, when we’ll close at 1pm.

We’re taking our usual annual break to get some R&R, and the studio will officially re-open on Wednesday the 23rd of January, 2019.

Print packaging (sleeves & backing boards) are out of stock for the remainder of 2018. Rest assured, these items will return again in 2019! Dismiss
