Post and Packing Charges...

Please note the prices below include not only the postage, but also the cost of the packaging in a stiffened board backed envelope, extra internal packaging and a plastic sleeve for each postcard.

If the value of the order is less than £30.00 GBP the following post and packing charges will apply

Destination 1 - 5 Postcards Over 5 Postcards
Postage UK (First Class) £1.25 GBP £1.65 GBP
Postage European Union £2.85 GBP £4.10 GBP
Postage Rest of World £3.70 GBP £5.45 GBP

If the value of the order exceeds £30.00 GBP please contact me for details as this is above the maximum amount for compensation payable by Royal Mail for 1st class UK and airmail post and will require extra insurance.

I will always try to minimise postal charges - for example by sending large orders in more than one package if that works out cheaper.
