iBookBinding is on holiday from the 21st of December to the 7th of January. You will still be able to place an order during this period, but all orders will be processed after we return! Due to the high pressure on postal services during this high season, please be advised that delivery of your order may be delayed. On average, it takes around a week for an order to be delivered to the EU, 1-2 weeks for addresses in the US and Canada, and 1-3 weeks for the rest of the world. But during the Holiday Season, it may take longer.
