We want to ensure that all our customers receive their parcels in time for the beginning of December (for advent products) or in time for Christmas (if you've ordered Christmas gifts). Our courier partners, Royal Mail and DPD, are extremely busy with many more parcels in the network than is usual at this time of the year. This has meant that we have increased our standard UK postage rate to £5.50 and so we will then be sending all parcels on a tracked service to make sure you receive parcels within 3 or 4 days. Orders over £50 for UK customers continue to have free postage costs.
If you choose our 'next day' delivery service (order before 11am) then these orders will of course be despatched the same day.
Should you have any queries about your order or your delivery, then please do call us on 01386 853331 or email email@example.com.
We offer FREE* standard delivery for all UK orders of £50 or over (not including bulky items or alcohol). There is a £2 discount on UK postage for all single greetings cards orders.
