Dispatched orders

We need to allow up to 7 days for delivery by Royal Mail. Courier deliveries are delivered the next day, they were dispatched only on weekdays. For international order allow 2 weeks from the dispatch day. If your order is not delivered at that time please contact us within a week. If you need something by a specific date make sure that you either select the guaranteed courier delivery OR place the order well in advance. Please make sure to contact us by email or by phone and confirm the dispatch time.

For the vast majority of orders we deliver in time or even ahead of the set ETAs. However, ETAs are 'estimated' time of arrivals and consequently they are not always 100% accurate for a number of reasons. For example, they do not take into consideration bank holidays, neither can they predict delays due to weather conditions or other unexpected circumstances. We calculate ETAs based on the time of the day you place an order. Printers typically dispatched orders the same day if you place an order before noon. Depending on the delivery method you selected and the finishing options required we add a number of days, e.g. 1 or 2 etc. If the ETA falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then we set the ETA to the following Monday. You can follow your order using the reporting tool which offers updates regarding the progress of the order. Once orders are dispatched, it is the responsibility of the courier to deliver in time.

Although the ETA is typically accurate we cannot guarantee delivery times as this is the responsibility of the selected courier. If your order is urgent please contact us to confirm the dispatch time.
