Why You Should Get Your Business ‘Christmas-Ready’ In Summer – Shredded-Paper

Posted by Liz Seyi on October 3rd, 2023

As the wheel of the year continues to turn, the festive season looms ever closer with every passing day – and for many businesses, the planning processes for Christmas 2023 will already be underway.

Indeed, you might have noticed that here at Shredded-Paper.co.uk, we recently launched our own Yuletide-season store, complete with great deals on all manner of Christmas colour shredded paper


So, why should you start thinking about the most wonderful time of the year when many people are still outside in the sun eating ice creams? Read on to discover some of the benefits that getting ahead can offer your business.

  • It allows you to get organised

By being organised and planning ahead, you can help make sure your business is ready to make the most of the opportunities for festive custom as soon as the Christmas shopping season starts. 

After all, let’s face it; that ‘start’ point seems to get earlier every year. Some people now begin their Christmas shopping as soon as August to help spread the expense over time amid the cost-of-living crisis. 

So, why not start planning your own business’s festive-season strategy now? Pick the date that you want to launch your Christmas product lines and sales campaigns, and work backwards to see how long you have. This will allow you to get organised, and help ensure your customers have the best experience.

  • It allows you to order supplies

If your business relies on pretty packaging and cute finishes to satisfy customers, it is best to get this ordered and in place sooner rather than later. 

Not only does this help you feel that little bit smugger, but it also means you can beat the rush. At a time when your industry competitors might be rushing to stock on up emergency supplies of Christmas colour shredded paper, labels, and decorations, you will be in a position to fulfil customer orders even sooner than buyers might expect. 

  • It allows you time to make choices

By having your strategy and plan mapped out well ahead of time, you will be giving yourself the freedom and flexibility to make choices in advance. 

Put out some feelers; is there a product that is sure to be in demand among your customers over the Christmas period? If so, consider putting an “early bird” deal or special offer in place. Alternatively, if there is something that is not working, you will have time to pull it and replace it with a more effective option.

So, now could be the time for your business to get moving ahead of the festive period 

The dying days of July or the first few days of August may seem far too soon to plan for the festive season. However, there are a number of advantages to getting ahead of the game – and your post-Christmas profits will thank you for your organisation!

So, be sure to get those orders in for that all-important Christmas colour shredded paper and other essentials, before you risk facing too much competition from your industry rivals for such items. 

And don’t forget that here at Shredded-Paper.co.uk, we offer free delivery of our own shredded papers to most mainland UK postcodes!
