Delivery within the UK

Due to parcels vanishing in the hands of Royal Mail all parcels are now be sent via courier.

This takes approx. 3days to arrive once dispatched so please allow 3-5 working days for delivery.

If you require a faster delivery please drop us an email and we can upgrade to next day service, this will however be a few more pennies!

If you are outside of the UK please contact us before ordering.


Delivery charges

As I am sure many of you know couriers are not the cheapest option. However, it does allow us to track your parcels one they are sent. So, unlike Royal Mail we can check that you have received them safely and in the unlikely event a parcel goes the wrong direction we are able to locate it and make sure it makes it way back to you.

We therefore charge a flat rate postal fee of £3.75 (9 time out of 10 this is far less than the actual price we pay!)

One day when we are as big as the say Amazon or those other book people 😉 we will be able to offer free postage!

Next day service varies depending on weight so please contact us for a quote.
