In the following section we have tried to address issues and questions that customers often have asked with regards to shipping, lead times and returns. If you cannot find the information that you are looking for here then please feel free to contact us at anytime on 01691 780416.

Delivery information

We aim to dispatch all orders in 7 working days, from the day following receipt of your completed order together with cleared payment. In the case of Next Day orders these will be dispatched the same day as the order is received as long as this is prior to 3pm on a Working Day ( defined as Monday to Friday inclusive)

All orders will be dispatched via DPD or Royal Mail depending on the destination. We have tried to lay out below some basic information below that we feel might be off assistance. If any of this is unclear or you have any questions then please feel free to contact us at any time by calling 01691 780416 or e mailing us as

Delivery Charges

Our Charges are based on the weight of your goods however these are currently capped at a maximum charge of £7.00 for standard delivery and £12.00 for Next Day delivery in the UK. Delivery charge for the UK will not be more than this regardless of the number of reels ordered. In the case of small orders for just one reel of ribbon under 10mm wide then the delivery charge is currently £1.85. The majority of orders, where the ribbon width is 15mm wider will fall in to our £4.25 price bracket as these will have to be sent as small parcel. All items dispatched via Royal Mail are sent on a tracked service.

Highlands & Islands

At the current time we do not penalise the Highlands of Scotland and out lying Islands with a delivery surcharge for items ordered on a standard delivery, however were a Next Day delivery service is required then we do have to pass on the carriers additional charges. However please bare in mind that all deliveries to these locations will be sent by First Class Royal Mail if ordered on a Standard Service and may be subject to slightly longer delivery times which are solely down to the operations of the Royal Mail in these areas.

Northern Ireland

We are pleased to confirm that we can offer Next Day service if required to Northern Ireland, this is currently operated via Royal Mail on a Guaranteed Next Day Special Delivery Service. In the case of large orders or high value ordered then these will be dispatched via DPD.
