Personalised Items

If an item requires personalisation i.e. Engraving, Embroidery or Painted/Printed products then all orders placed on or before 16th December 2019 will be dispatched for delivery before Christmas. After this time we will endeavour to dispatch before Christmas up until 19th December, this we achieved last year however it’s no guarantee we will this year.

Priority Shipping, if offered, up to 20th December 2019 on Painted/Printed products and will be delivered before Christmas.

Next Day delivery is available up to 19th December 2019 on Engraved or Embroidered products.

International Shipping for personalised items

European Standard Shipping – 12th December 2019

European Priority Shipping – 12th December 2019

International Standard Shipping – 4th December 2019

International Priority Shipping – 10th December 2019

The Dispatch Dates are based on cleared funds being received for the item which instigates the dispatch process.

We use Royal Mail for most items and thus delivery capability is dictated by their performance. At this time of year it can take longer than their stated timescales. Some personalised items are dispatched via courier.

Next Day/ Priority and International Shipping services are a signed for service and thus if no one is available to sign either a redelivery will need to be arranged or the item will need to be picked up from the local sorting office/depot.
