UK Royal Mail & Hermes UK for Parcels
All Parcels are sent at a flat rate of £2.99 per order for UK deliveries under £65, regardless of how many items you buy. Royal Mail recorded parcels are normally delivered within two working days of being sent and require a signature upon receipt, Dispatch times prior to postage as below.
We try to set a fair price for products and postage is on top instead of hiking the product price to cover postage, we have found that this pricing works out fair for everyone bearing in mind the new postage costs based on size a 200m cotton comes in at over £3.00 without packaging. But the Post office do a Sterling Job for us and our customers so its a fair price to pay for the convenience, and generally cheaper than the parking to nip to your closest shop.
