You could but can you afford to send 'em.

What is the current price for that.

Stamps end up costing more than the card - I usually buy a book of ten Christmas stamps for sending cards to UK for around $30 - you get one stamp for free if you buy a book.

I don't worry about such things as "cut offs"

Normally send around 18th December from Australia to the UK

And have always arrived on time or thereabouts

Buy cheap $1.00 cards from the Chinese "cheap-as-chips" store......... (only going to end up in the bin anyway, so pointless spending $$$$)

Funny that the postage costs more than the actual card

This is the NZ forum , not Oz.

You may not care about the cut off dates but those looking forward to receiving their caring card or little something from those of us in NZ might prefer they arrive before Xmas period rather than after.
Those of us with older family members and friends certainly know the value of making the effort and of course that works vice versa. I love receiving the few cards and the odd Dorset calendar. Lifts my heart.

Same here, swapping cards & pressies is important to our family and we have learnt over the years that sometimes it can take 3 days to send stuff, but on other occasions it has taken over a month. Sooner posted the better, and never rely on it being a fast service at Christmas to either NZ or Aus.

Seems to be $3.30 to send a card from NZ to the UK or the rest of the world.

Yes dear. I know that. I am not stupid.

I lived in NZ for two years

I have always sent my Xmas cards on 18th December or thereabouts every year.
