Postage & Packaging (P&P) Information

Postage is calculated based upon which region you are in and will be added after checkout and before the payment gateway. Please make sure that you have the correct country on your address.
Postage is worked out as a percentage of your order. For most orders this is remarkably accurate although items such as books almost always cost more to post than the website charges. Occasionally, if there are many lighter items in your order such as transfers, the postage charged by the website might be more than the value of the stamp. Please remember that P&P does include an element to cover the packaging – packaging and boxes are suprisingly expensive!

Normal Delivery Charges

Minimum P&P Charge

There is a minimum P&P charge of:

  • £2.50 in the UK
  • £3.50 in the EU (Excluding Italy)
  • £10 to Italy
  • £9.50 to USA
  • £5.00 for ROW

Please note this is a minimum, not an additional, charge.
The high cost to italy is to reflect that we have to send the parcels via courier, as we loose so many otherwise – very sorry to our Italian customers.
The high cost to the USA reflects the fact that USPS have increase t he last mile delivery costs by between 50% and in excess of 100% (July 2020). this has resulted in the UK Royal Mail creating a new unique shipping band for USA to reflect these increased costs – we apologise to our american customers but we are simply passing on the increased costs from USPS and Royal Mail.

Bulky or Heavy

Some items are rather bulky and/or heavy and our postal systems charge both on weight and dimensions of package, therefore for items that are bulky and/or heavy we have some different rates.
