Could it be because of all of the holiday mail??  Just a thought to consider.

Agree, this is probably because of all the holiday mail.  Usually my mail takes 2-3 days to get places, but I am planning on getting on top of my holiday cards tonight to ensure they get where they’re going before Christmas!

It could be the holiday mail, or some other reason…did you put a return address on them?

I definitely bet this could be due to the increased holiday mail!  I’ve heard people say that mail takes a good week longer than it usually does this time of year.

I think it’s just the holiday rush!  I’d give it another week!

I would give it another week too.  I sent 3 Save-The-Date Cards to one address–one to my aunt & uncle, and one to each of my adult cousins.  They arrived on THREE SEPARATE days!  My aunt got hers last and was starting to get offended (well, I think she was kidding when she told me), thinking she wasn’t getting one.

We had a few people who moved, and it takes a very long time for the post office to return undeliverable mail.  But I do think the issue is the incredible increase in mail during this time of year and your STD will soon reach the guests.

I just ordered something to be mailed and there was a notice on the website saying that USPS was experiencing delays because of larger-than-anticipated volumes of holiday mail. It’s probably that.

I would attribute the amount of time to the time of year. In addition, (I’m basing this mainly off of my local PO as my dad works there) for the past several years, as people retire or quit, the PO does not always replace them.  This means they are more shorthanded then ever, which might be why it feels like it is taking longer than usual.  When mail is sent from one PO to another, it first arrives at the other PO plant.  Especially if there is more than one PO in the area. Sometimes, if the plant is really shorthanded, mail can sit for a couple days just waiting to be sorted, before it even arrives at the correct PO to actually be delivered.

That being said, mail really can get lost from time to time, so if it doesn’t show up in the next couple of days you might consider sending out those digital ones.

Definitely due to the holidays and when the post office actually sends the mail. Sometimes they send in batches (no idea why) so it doesn’t actually all leave the same time.
