Delivery Charges

UK - FREE over £30

Orders that are £10.01 to £30 are charged at £2.99 per order.

Orders that are £10 or less are charged at £1.50 per order.

Heavy or bulky items are charged according to their weight and/or size and may incur a shipping charge regardless of order value up to a maximum charge of £5.99. In most cases shipping charges are significantly more than £5.99.

Examples of heavy/bulky items that may incur additional charges are:

Low Value Bulky Items

Basic polyester wadding

Toy filling

Storage boxes

Heavy Items

Magnetic sheets

Card packs

Card & envelope packs which are again low value but heavy at around 1 kilo each per pack.

The list of heavy & bulky items is fortunately small, but we do have to make a charge for postage to cover a portion of our postage costs.That way we can give you the lowest price for your items and so the lowest overall cost for your order.


We do not currently ship outside the UK.

When shipping is free, we use Second Class Post or a courier service depending on the order value and the location it is being posted to.

When we post by Royal Mail, we must allow 10 working days (20 under the pandemic conditions*) for the parcel to arrive before we deem this parcel 'missing'.  If your parcel does go missing, we will replace it.

Royal Mail are working at a limited capacity under the current pandemic conditions.

Orders received by 12 noon are usually despatched the same day. This applies only to those orders sent by Royal mail weighing less than 2 kilos.

Heavy orders over 2kg are sent by courier using a 3-day trackable service and must be signed for on delivery. Once your order has been prepared it will normally be collected by our courier on the next working day after you place your order. We cannot be held responsible for a failed delivery if no-one is available to sign for it or if instructions regarding delivery alternatives have not been communicated.

If your order is urgent, please phone us either before or after you have placed your order so that we can arrange the best and most convenient way to deliver your order to you. There may be additional charges for using an alternative delivery service.
