Shipping by Royal Mail & Costs

Processing your order

​When an order is placed with us, in normal circumstances, your order will be processed and sent within a couple of days. Most items are produced to your order, very rarely specific materials may not be in stock (e.g. special card / inks, etc.) and this may cause a delay. If this is the case we will email you or make contact to advise you. If these remain unavailable from our supplier within a reasonable period we will give you a refund.

How your items are sent

​We want the items the items that you have ordered to arrive with you quickly and in perfect condition. We take great care to package packs. Items are sandwiched in bubble wrap with stout card outers before being put in envelopes. Generally all the items that are sent are large envelopes (A5 & A4 size) as defined by Royal Mail. The envelope is clearly marked with DO NOT BEND on the front. All orders are sent from the Post Office. Once despatched  you will receive a message from us via PayPal informing you that your order is on its way. Please allow 7 to 10 working days for delivery. We always get proof of posting.

​Most orders within the United Kingdom are sent by 1st class large letter mail. Our prices reflect Royal Mail charges. Despite considerable increases we try to minimise these.However, for orders with a value of less than £10.00, these will be sent by 2nd class large letter mail.

Similarly, the cost for sending items outside the UK reflect the International charges made by Royal Mail.
