When you place an order it goes directly to the stockist/maker and they will post your item(s) to you.

The delivery costs and timescales are stated in each product description and vary depending on who you are buying from and what you are buying.

If you are buying from more than one stockist/maker you will be charged postage by each of them as they each incur their own postage costs

If you are buying more than one item from the same stockist/maker they do not combine postage, instead the highest postage amount is what you will pay.

For example, if you are buying a picture and a card from the same stockist/maker and the postage cost for the picture is £3 and the postage cost for the card is £1 you will pay a total of £3 postage rather than £4
