Dispatch and Delivery
Once we receive your order and payment, we aim to dispatch your order within 3 working days (subject to availability of goods). For example, as shown in the dispatch table below, an order placed on Monday will be dispatched no later than Thursday. Our working days are Monday to Friday. At the current time, all orders will only be dispatched via our economy postage service.
|Order Received||Dispatch on or Before|
Your delivery charge is calculated from two elements:
- Cost of posting your order (dependent on the weight and size)
- A small fixed packing charge covering the cost of packing materials and handling
Delivery costs start at £1.50 for our economy option on items such as Greetings Cards and Socks. Many other items and combinations of items (e.g. Mugs, Notebooks and Notepads) up to 1kg attract an economy delivery charge of £3.50.
For orders where the cost of goods exceeds £50.00, standard postage is free.
Jewellery orders of a value of over £80.00 will be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery. This services will be provided at no extra cost to you.
The delivery options will be presented to you at the Checkout stage so you will be able to select your delivery option and see exactly what delivery will cost before completing an order.
We use Royal Mail for our standard delivery services. Orders sent by Royal Mail First Class Post or Royal Mail 24 (our Standard Postage option) will normally arrive within 1-3 days from dispatch and orders sent by Royal Mail Second Class Post or Royal Mail 48 (our Economy Postage option) will normally arrive within 3-5 days from dispatch although these timescales cannot be guaranteed. Large or bulky orders will usually be sent by Royal Mail ParcelForce 48.
In many cases, you will be provided with the option to choose Royal Mail Special Delivery when you go to Checkout. This option provides a 'next working day' delivery service from the time of dispatch.
Please note we currently only dispatch to addresses within the UK.
For orders with a value below £100 you will be presented with the option to enter an alternative delivery address during Checkout. If you have alternative delivery requirements please contact our telephone ordering service line to discuss your order.
