Despatch and Delivery
It might take up to ten working days (not including Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays) for making and shipping your item; As a small indie business it is difficult to predict sales to avoid excess stock. Dispatching normally occurs within within 2-3 working days; initially i will contact you if this going to be longer. However, If you need the item much faster or are on a deadline, just send me an email and I can see what can be done.

Import Duties, Charges or Taxes

Delivery and Shipping
I use Royal mail and send orders to the UK 2nd class and non tracked Air Mail for all international orders as standard. It can take up to 3 days in Britiain from the date of despatch. If you require your order quicker or tracked then please email before purchase. If you are a non-UK customer please remember your item is being shipped from England so please allow approximately 10 days to Europe and up to 6 weeks to arrive to USA, Canada, Australia and Asia.
Lost / Undelivered
Royal Mail only consider a package to be officially lost 15 days after the expected delivery date (around 18 days after dispatch for UK orders and 25 for International orders), but please contact me within 1 month of order if it hasn’t been recieved. In the unlikely event that your order has gotten lost, please contact me at email@example.com or use the contact form.
If you can show that your item was damaged upon delivery, I will usually send you a replacement free of charge, or alternatively a full refund. I will, however, ask for photographic evidence from you in these instances, to help me recover insurance monies from Royal Mail.
