TAKING CARE OF YOUR ORDER
All products shown on our website are made and printed to order so please bear in mind it may take a few days to get your card(s) or print(s) made, carefully packaged up and ready for shipping.

We normally aim to do this within 2 working days of receiving your order but personalised products can take a bit longer (especially allowing for a proof and your approval where required).

If your order is more urgent, then please add this as a note at the checkout and we will do our best to turn things around for you more quickly - but we can’t make any guarantees.

Our studio is open Monday to Friday, but we generally try and close at weekends.

 

HOW WILL MY ORDER BE PACKAGED UP FOR DELIVERY?

Greetings cards
We carefully package your card(s) in a biodegradable/compostable clear bag, wrap them in acid-free tissue paper and protect them with additional cardboard inserts and ship them in a sturdy hardback 'Please do not bend' envelope or rigid cardboard mailing pack depending on the number of cards ordered.

Prints
Small to medium prints (up to A3 size) are carefully wrapped with acid-free tissue paper and shipped in a sturdy rigid cardboard mailing pack (with additional cardboard stiffeners for extra protection). In some instances we may ship our A3 prints in a thick cardboard tube.

Large prints (16x20 and A2 size) are all carefully wrapped with acid-free tissue paper and shipped in a thick cardboard tube for protection.

For the immediate future we are only able to ship to the UK.
