COVID-19 Update (Coronavirus):

We are still able to fulfil online orders at this time.

Please note we are following government guidelines to keep us all safe.  No one will be working who has any symptoms and there is only one person dispatching orders.

There is a slight delay in dispatching parcels due to adjusted Royal Mail collections.  Orders will now be dispatched one day later than they usually would.  Royal Mail have also adjusted their delivery guarantees so please be patient during this turbulent time.

How long will my order take to arrive?

Please read COVID-19 update first.

Please add BOTH the dispatch time AND the estimated delivery times together to estimate how long your parcel will take to arrive to you.

Orders are dispatched from the UK within 1-2 working days.

UK orders with Royal Mail take between 1-2 working days to arrive once dispatched for TRACKED 24 and 2-3 working days for TRACKED 48. These are Royal Mails time frames, not ours.

International orders normally take between 3-7 working days to arrive once dispatched. America is normally 5-6 working days, and countries (such as Austrailia) that are further away can take up to 10 working days or longer.

 

How much is shipping?

UK orders cost £3.95 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 and £5.50 for Royal Mail Tracked 24.

Orders to the United States are £10.10 for Royal Mail Tracked and Signed.

All other international orders cost £12.95 to ship and are tracked. Unfortunately, this is just a flat rate for all other countries outside the UK. We cannot offer individual prices for each country at the minute, but we are working on it.

 

I’ve noticed my shipping address is incorrect, what can I do?

Who pays customs charges?
