Postage & Packaging (P&P) Information
Postage is calculated based upon which region you are in and will be added after checkout and before the payment gateway. Please make sure that you have the correct country on your address.
Postage is worked out as a percentage of your order. For most orders this is remarkably accurate although items such as books almost always cost more to post than the website charges. Occasionally, if there are many lighter items in your order such as transfers, the postage charged by the website might be more than the value of the stamp. Please remember that P&P does include an element to cover the packaging – packaging and boxes are suprisingly expensive!
