UNITED KINGDOM- For small parcels under 1kg we use Royal Mail First Class or Recorded Delivery Services. We work with DPD couriers for UK next day deliveries over 1kg.

All international orders received before midday Monday to Thursday will be shipped the same day. Orders received on a Saturday/ Sunday and Monday morning will be shipped on Monday (If a signed/tracked service is selected) or Tuesday (if standard International airmail delivery).
