One of our main delivery partners, Royal Mail, is planning strike action for Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October.
This means there will be no Royal Mail collections from our warehouse on 30th September or nationwide deliveries from them on 30th September and 1st October. Whilst we will do our best to use other carriers for some of the parcels sent out on 30th September, please note that customers who choose our UK Standard Delivery Service or parcels containing alcohol (for which we have to use Royal Mail), there is likely to be a delay of 2-3 additional days in your parcel reaching you.
The strikes are out of our control. We can only advise you to ensure that your order is placed in advance in order to mitigate delays.
This strike action does not affect any Next Day deliveries as we will be using DPD for this service.
We appreciate your patience during this time.
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.
Please note that due to customs restrictions, we are unable to deliver alcohol to Northern Ireland addresses.
Europe: up to £30 £14.95, over £30 £18.95
