We dispatch to the UK and Rep. of Ireland only. Please see Delivery Page for our current dispatch times. We can on occasion reduce delivery timescale if your order is urgent, but please contact us before placing an order as this is NOT guaranteed. It is the responsibility of you, the purchaser, to ensure that all orders are placed in plenty of time before the date required. If sufficient time has not been left by the purchaser to receive the products in time,we are not responsible and refunds will not be issued.

Once your order has been placed you will receive an email with the dispatch date for your order and you will also be emailed on the day of dispatch to confirm your item/s have been posted. Orders sent by Royal Mail 1st class should be delivered within 2 - 5 working days after dispatch and by Airmail 5 - 7 days after dispatch. However, once dispatched, we cannot be responsible for parcels and if your order does not arrive when expected please allow a day or two for any delays in transit. Please also check to see if your order has been left with a neighbour, as the Royal Mail will be rolling out it's 'Deliver to a Neighbour' scheme nationally (see below for details) if not, please check with your local Royal Mail depot as calling cards are NOT always left with attempted deliveries.
If, after checking with your neighbour and local depot your order has not been located please contact us within 24 hours and we will conduct an investigation and where applicable send replacements or issue a refund. If it is close to the date your order is required, please do not delay in contacting us, as failure to do so, may mean that replacements cannot be made in time for your event.

From the end of September 2012, the Royal Mail will be rolling out this scheme nationally. This means that any parcels that are too big to fit through the letterbox and you are not home to take delivery will be delivered to a neighbour.
