1. When will my order be dispatched?
We will ask you when you want your order sent. The dispatch date is the day we post your order, and NOT the day it should arrive. If you order cards which are to be sent back to you, we will also include a blank envelope for you to use.
The following dispatch dates are relevant to when you order:
|Time Ordered (UK Time)*||Earliest Despatch Date*|
|Monday - Friday (Before 2pm)||Same Day|
|Monday - Thursday (After 2pm)||Following Day|
|Friday (After 2pm)||Following Monday|
|* PLEASE NOTE: UK Bank Holidays, orders will be despatched the next working day.|
2. How will my order be delivered?
All our printed products are sent by Royal Mail First Class mail unless you request Special Delivery. We expect 90% of orders to arrive the next working day, however, it may take up to 3 working days to arrive, particularly during peak periods. If your item was sent by First Class Post or Airmail First Class - this is not a trackable service. If you require a next day delivery service, you should use our Special Delivery option (see below).
Orders placed before 2pm (Mon-Fri) are sent out the same day (except Bank Hols).
Gift despatch details are shown on the individual product pages. Items sent Special Delivery require a signature. To avoid having to collect the package from the depot, or it being redelivered at a later date, please ensure that there is someone available to sign at the delivery address, or have it delivered to a work address.
It is recommended that you allow as much time as possible for your order to be delivered and where possible you should include a Postcode or Zip.
Corona Virus Latest Information on delivery and service
Due to the recent Corona Virus outbreak and in accordance to Government rules, we are still open for business but our fulfilment team has been reduced. With this in mind, as of 24th March 2020 we are asking people to allow extra time for delivery of their products. We are sending all our orders on time but due to increased demand for Royal Mail services, we are asking you to allow a little delay for your products to arrive with you. Please bear this in mind when ordering. If needing quickly, we advice you choose special delivery as we are finding that Royal Mail first class can take up to a week for delivery. We are in constant contact with our courier service and Royal Mail in order to maintain our ability to make deliveries, but their workload has obviously increased at a time when people are unable to leave their homes. We are told that they are constantly monitoring and reviewing resource and procedures to still deliver the best service for you and protect the health of their workers and customers.
You should allow the following as a minimum:
|Destination||Allow at least|
|UK||3 Working Days|
|Other EU Countries||5 Working Days|
|Outside the EU||7 Working Days|
