I do all my best to send the parcel as soon as it possible. Usually it is the next working day after purchase.
Interesting fact: often the speed of delivery does not depend on the distance. For example, once the package to New Zealand was delivered much faster than one to Germany.
Every time I hope that the parcel will be in the buyer hands before the expected time.
