How much is postage?

If your letter is being delivered to an address in the UK then postage is free!

When can I expect to receive my order?

For UK orders we will send your letter for using Royal Mail 1st class and it should arrive within 2-3 days from your order date. You will also receive a confirmation email when your letter(s) has/have been dispatched.

If your order is being delivered outside of the UK it can take up to 10 working days to arrive.

If you are ordering a number of letters to your household, on rare occasions they won’t all turn up on the same day. So, to avoid disappointment we advise you to wait until all letters arrive before handing them to your little ones…

Do you ship internationally

Yes, we ship to most countries world-wide. For delivery within the EU our postage costs are £1.99, for the rest of the world  postage is £2.99. To make sure your order arrives in time see here for last order dates.

What happens if my letter does not arrive?

In the extremely rare event that your letter is lost in the post, all we ask is that you contact us with your order reference. We will endeavour to get a replacement sent out immediately, free-of-charge.
